Whether you live in Bedale or anywhere else in the UK, our experienced injury lawyers are able to handle your claim and we will arrange a medical at a centre near you .
Making a claim
Claims must be made within a three-year window, starting from the date you knew of your injury in most cases.
People who have been diagnosed with certain injuries or illnesses like repetitive strain injuries are frequently still able to claim even if the condition developed as the result of events that happened years ago. In these circumstances, it is the date of diagnosis that matters.
To win a personal injury case, it must be proven that:
- The Defendant owed you a duty of care
- The Defendant breached that duty
- Your injury or illness was caused by that breach
