Making a claim
Compensation claims should usually be made within a 3-year window.
People who have been diagnosed with an illness or medical condition such as repetitive strain injuries may still be eligible for compensation even where the illness's cause happened years or even decades earlier. The date of knowledge, or diagnosis, is what starts the three-year time limit in such circumstances.
To win a personal injury case, your solicitor must demonstrate that the Defendant owed you a duty of care, that the Defendant breached that duty, and that your injury or illness was caused by that breach.
Beginning your claim sooner will enable the lawyer to help gather useful supporting evidence and witness statements.

Compensation is restricted by the expenses you have incurred and by guidelines set out by the Judicial College. Your solicitor's experience can impact the level of damages negotiated. Find out more here.
