Have I got a personal injury claim?
Updated: September 13, 2016
If you suffered an injury in the last 3 years and a third party was at fault, our panel of expert solicitors can assist you with a compensation 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
The amount of financial compensation you are likely to receive is dependent on the nature and seriousness of your injuries. Our online injury calculator provides a realistic idea of your potential damages award.
