Making a personal injury claim
Claims for personal injury compensation should be made within a 3-year window in the majority of cases.
People who have been diagnosed with an illness or medical condition like hand-arm vibration syndrome are frequently still able to claim even if the condition developed as the result of events that happened years ago. The date you are informed of your diagnosis is what starts the three-year time limit in such circumstances.
To win a personal injury case, your lawyer must demonstrate that the Defendant owed you a duty of care, that this duty of care was breached by the Defendant, and the breach was the cause of your injury.
The lawyer should explain how your claim will relate to the points.
