Do I have a claim for compensation?
Updated: September 18, 2016
If you suffered an injury in the last three years and another party was at fault, our personal injury solicitors can help you make a compensation claim.
Claims for personal injury compensation must be made within 3 years of the date you were injured or learned of your injury in most cases.
Claimants who have received a diagnosis of a medical condition or illness such as mesothelioma may still be eligible for compensation even if the illness was triggered by events some years ago. The date you are informed of your diagnosis is what starts the three-year time limit in these situations.
In the majority of cases, there are three elements to a successful personal injury claim. It must be demonstrated on the balance of probabilities that a duty of care was owed, that this duty was breached, and the breach was the cause of the injury or illness.
