Making A Personal Injury Claim In Swansea
In order to successfully make a claim for personal injury compensation, there are several criteria which you need to be able to demonstrate. There are also several other factors which are pertinent to successful personal injury claims. The criteria you need to satisfy are;
- That the defendant that you are making a claim against had a duty of care to you under the law.
- That the defendant has (in some way) breached this duty of care.
- That the breach (in the duty of care) directly lead to or caused your accident, resulting in an injury or illness.
Other factors which affect your claim can include how long ago the accident occurred, or the injuries were discovered. There is a standard three year period after the accident in which to make a claim. This three year period can start from the discovery of your injuries if symptoms arose after this period. The sooner you start your claim, the sooner your solicitor can start collecting the evidence needed.
How To Choose The Best No Win No Fee Solicitors In Swansea?
A critical step on the path to claiming the compensation you deserve is finding and working with the right solicitor. So, how do you find the right solicitor for your compensation case? Getting the compensation you deserve can be crucial for some people in recovering both physically and financially from an accident. As you will be spending a lot of time working with the solicitors, it is vital to have a good working relationship with them. Personal injury claims can vary greatly in their complexity and in the time it takes to process them. They can often take between several months and several years to complete. The more complex the accident, injuries or case, the longer it could take to complete.
All Swansea personal injury solicitors should be regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority, the SRA. However, the level of service you may receive and the way the service is provided, as well as fees charged can vary widely between different solicitors firms.
Reading Reviews Of Solicitors For More Information
When you are looking at reviews of Swansea personal injury solicitors, there are things you should consider. Look at what other people’s experiences of the firm have been. What is their effective success rate, and what level of fees do they charge if successful. You should also look to see that they are offering what is a truly, no win no fee service. Reviews can be a great way to compare the services and approach of different solicitors and legal firms.
However, nothing will compare to talking to directly to the solicitor about your claims case, the details and the likely success of your claims case.
Does It Matter Where Your Solicitor Is Based?
As with many different professional services in the digital age, you do not need to hire a lawyer, solicitors, or legal firm based in your area. The only part of a personal injury claim which would need to be administered locally are any medical examinations. To establish the necessary medical evidence you will need to undergo a medical examination, this will be carried out by a medical professional who partners with your Swansea personal injury solicitors. Wherever your solicitors are located, they will organise for a local expert to carry out the exam and collect the necessary evidence.
The amount of compensation you will receive will be determined by two main factors. The Judicial College guidelines set the banding of compensation you will receive. As well as this, other compensation will be determined by the amount of out-of-pocket expenses you have had to meet. The amount of compensation you could get for a claim type will vary between different firms. Two different solicitors can get different levels of compensation for the same type of case. They can also leave you with differing amounts of compensation after the fee.
