Making an injury claim
Claims must, in most cases, be made within three years.
People who have received a diagnosis of a medical condition or illness such as industrial deafness may still be eligible for compensation even if the condition developed as the result of events that happened years ago. In such cases, it is the date you are informed of your diagnosis that is important.
Whether compensation is being claimed for a work-related illness in Alva or road accident, there are three components to making a successful claim. It must be proven that the person or company causing the injury owed you a duty of care, that this duty of care was breached, and this breach caused your illness or injury.
Getting your claim started sooner will allow the lawyer to gather evidence and witness statements.
