Making A Personal Injury Claim In Wakefield
The UK has a considerable amount of Health and Safety legislation. Statutes such as the Health and Safety Act have been designed to provide a protective framework in which people are protected, whether they are employees or members of the public. At Legal Expert, our panel of solicitors has a wealth of experience in helping to advise clients on how likely their claim is to succeed. Generally, personal injury claims need to be brought within three years of the initial accident. However, some injuries may take years to surface and can be triggered by an accident which happened many years before this time frame. In these cases, the date of diagnosis is the starting date for your three-year claims period.
Successful Compensation Claims
In order to bring a successful compensation claims case, your solicitors will need to show that the defendant owed you a duty of care. This could be as an employer, or as the owner of a shop or even a medical professional. Solicitors will also need to show this duty of care was breached in some way, and that this caused the accident leading to your illness or injury. At the beginning of your claim, your solicitor will gather evidence to support this.
How To Find The Best Personal Injury Solicitor for Your Claims Case
Personal Injury compensation claims cases can be complex and difficult. As such, they can often take months or even years to complete. The more severe your injuries or complicated the accident, illness or medical negligence which led to your injury, the longer it can take to process a claim. As such, you need to find a solicitor you can work with.
All personal injury solicitors in Wakefield are regulated by a body known as the Solicitors Regulation Authority, or the SRA. However, within this their level of service can greatly differ. As your solicitor can play a vital role in getting your life back on track and recovering any financial losses, it is very important to choose the right solicitors.
