Making an injury claim
Claims must be made within a three-year window in most cases.
Powerful legislation is in place to give support to Claimants seeking compensation for their injuries, and Quittance's network of solicitors have years of experience giving advice to their clients regarding the likelihood of success.
For most claims, proving a claim will involve three issues. It needs to be shown that:
- a duty of care was owed
- that the duty was breached
- the breach was the cause of the injury or illness
Beginning your claim as soon as possible should allow your lawyer to gather evidence and witness statements.

The difference in the level of success fees and After the Event (ATE) insurance premiums between solicitors can have a significant impact on your compensation.
