Making an injury claim
Compensation claims must, in the majority of cases, be made within a 3-year window.
People who have been diagnosed with an illness or medical condition such as mesothelioma are frequently still able to claim even where the illness's cause happened years or even decades earlier. In such cases, it is the date that you learn of your diagnosis that is considered.
In most cases, there are three key components to making a successful claim. It needs to be proven that:
- a duty of care was owed
- that the duty was breached
- the breach was the cause of the injury or illness
