Qualifying for personal injury compensation

Personal injury claims should, in the majority of cases, be made within a 3-year window.

In the majority of cases, proving an injury claim involves three components. It must be proven that a duty of care was owed, that this duty was breached, and the breach was the cause of the injury or illness.

Your solicitor should look at how these issues will relate to your injury claim.
