Can I make a personal injury claim?
If you have been injured, or were diagnosed with an injury or illness, in the last three years and someone else owed you a duty of care, our expert solicitors can help you make a claim for financial compensation.
Qualifying for personal injury compensation
People who have been diagnosed with certain injuries or illnesses such as noise-induced deafness may still be eligible for compensation even if the condition developed as the result of events that happened years ago. The date of knowledge, or diagnosis, is what starts the three-year time limit in these situations.
In order to win a Bolton personal injury case, it should be demonstrated 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.
A no-obligation phone consultation with an expert solicitor can provide answers to your questions and useful guidance.
