Can I Make a Claim?
If you have sustained an injury or suffered from an incident that you believe was not your fault then the answer is most likely YES. We will generally be able to provide you with an indication of likely success from an initial telephone conversation to assess your claim (this is free of charge).
In a personal injury case the most common claim is for negligence and this has a time limit of 3 years. This means that court proceedings should be issued within 3 years of first being aware that you have suffered an injury. However, a court may decide to extend this time limit in limited circumstances. Special rules apply for children and adults under a disability. See below for more information.
At Folgate Legal we will only take on a No Win, No Fee compensation claim if we feel there is a reasonable chance of success.
Sometimes we are asked ‘How Much Compensation Will I Receive?’ For an indication of compensation awards please and further guidance on compensation please visit our Compensation page.
