Do I have a personal injury claim?
Updated: September 12, 2016
If you were injured in the last 3 years and another person was to blame, our panel of expert solicitors can assist you with a claim.
People who have received a diagnosis of a medical condition or illness like RSI are often still entitled to claim compensation even where the cause of the illness occurred years ago. In such cases, it is the date that you learn of your diagnosis that is considered.
In the majority of cases, proving a claim involves three components. It needs to be shown that:
- the person or company causing the injury owed you a duty of care
- the duty of care was breached
- this breach caused your illness or injury
Beginning your claim sooner will enable witness statements to be gathered by your lawyer.Back to top

Medical negligence in Battle
Clinical negligence (medical negligence) is the term for when someone suffers injury or illness due to the carelessness of a GP, nurse or other health worker. If you have been affected by medical negligence, Quittance can help you make a claim against the hospital or clinic responsible for the injury.
If you only want a deeper understanding of what happened instead of financial damages, you could use the NHS Resolution process. To make a complaint against Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals NHS Trust, for example, you can contact Royal Sussex County Hospital, Eastern Road, Brighton, East Sussex.
