Do I have a injury claim?
Updated: September 17, 2016
If you suffered an injury or illness, or became aware of an injury, in the last 3 years and another person was liable, Quittance can assist you with a claim for compensation.
A claim must usually be made within a three-year window.
In order to successfully win an injury claim, it must be proven that the Defendant owed you a duty of care, that this duty of care was breached by the Defendant, and the breach was the cause of your injury.
Legal and practical advice will be offered through a no-obligation phone consultation with an Adlington injury lawyer.Back to top
How much can I claim?
The compensation you will be awarded will depend on a number of factors. Our claim calculator gives an estimate of the award or settlement you could be due.

When a person suffers injury or illness due to a doctor or other health worker's lack of care, it may be possible to make a clinical negligence claim. Quittance's expert panel of injury lawyers can help you claim compensation from the NHS trust or private clinic.
Alternatively, you could make a formal complaint if you only want a detailed explanation of what happened instead of financial damages.
