Have I got a claim for injury compensation?
Updated: September 15, 2016
If you have been injured, or were diagnosed with an injury or illness, in the last 3 years and a third party owed you a duty of care, Quittance's panel of solicitors can assist you with a claim for financial compensation.
People who have been diagnosed with an illness or medical condition like 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 of diagnosis that is important.
For most claims, there are three main elements to a successful personal injury claim. It needs to be demonstrated that:
- a duty of care was owed
- that the duty was breached
- the breach was the cause of the injury or illness
