Can I make a claim for compensation?
Updated: September 11, 2016
If you suffered an injury or illness, or became aware of an injury, in the last three years and another party was liable, our personal injury solicitors can help you make a claim for compensation.
Qualifying for personal injury compensation
Claims should be made within three years of an injury in most cases.
In order to successfully win an injury claim, your solicitor must demonstrate 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.Back to top
