What information will you need to start my claim?
Initially we would need to speak to you on the telephone or meet with you in person to discuss your case and get details of your claim.
Because we are local we can easily arrange to visit you in your home, at work, in hospital or you can visit our offices for a chat with one of our friendly members of staff.
We’ll talk about:
- Whether you have a justifiable claim
- How your case might be funded, including ‘No Win - No Fee’ agreements
- Making a claim within the required time limits
- Maximising your entitlement
- Rehabilitation and assisting with your recovery
How long do I have to make a claim?
Generally you must issue Court proceedings within 3 years of the incident causing the injury, but if you did not know the cause of the injury until later, the 3 years will usually run from the date you became aware. Claims to the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority must be made within 2 years of the date of the incident, but there are circumstances when this can be waived.
There are lots of Personal Injury companies out there – what makes JWK Solicitors different?
Our whole approach is different to other Personal Injury claim companies:-
- We are able to offer a comprehensive service and have the flexibility to meet your personal needs.
- We don’t think of you as just a client, but a person who has suffered an injury and deserves to receive an exceptional level of service.
