    Personal injury solicitor in Atherstone

    How can I find a personal injury solicitor uniquely qualified to represent my interests?

    This is a good question and one which has a broad, relatively simple answer but it will, of course vary from case to case. Different cases can be handled by a different personal injury solicitor in Atherstone as each case will have a whole range of different complexities unique to them.

    But here is a quick guide:

    Step 1: Assessing your eligibility

    This is not an assessment as you, an individual, but rather a thorough assessment of the situation of the accident or incident in which you were hurt. Within personal injury compensation law, there are factors that must be present in order to make a claim. Without this criteria being met, your injury solicitor may be unable to proceed.

    What are the criteria?

    Broadly speaking they are:

    • The no-fault accident – you must not be responsible for the accident or incident
    • Injuries must be significant (that is, with symptoms) – not sure your injury meets this criteria, call Accident Advice Helpline on 0800 689 0500 or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile
    • 3 year deadline – claims must be lodged within 3 years of the date of the accident (this does vary with claims for industrial diseases and cases involving children under 18 years of age)

    Step 2: YOUR case

    Should your case for compensation be eligible, on your instruction, your case will be passed to the appropriate legal team, the one that specialises in your type of claim; it could be one of our expert injury solicitors. With your help, they create a case that is not only detailed, but irrefutable.

    Step 3: Liability

    The aim is to keep your case from reaching court by presenting such a detailed case to the ‘other side’ that they admit liability for your injuries; in other words, they say “yes, we were at fault”. This way, the case if far less stressful for you and is also quickly resolved.

    Step 4: The Offer

    If the other side accept liability, they will make an offer of compensation. Your injury solicitor will advise on the next steps that you could take: accept or decline. They will point out all the pros and cons of each decision but at the end of the day, this is YOUR compensation case, ultimately, it is your decision.

    Most clients choose to accept; only those with far reaching and complex cases ask a judge to decide the level of compensation.
