Making a personal injury claim
Powerful legislation is in place to support injured people who seek compensation, and Quittance's network of solicitors have years of experience giving advice to their clients on the likelihood of success.
People who have been diagnosed with certain injuries or illnesses like mesothelioma are often still entitled to claim compensation even where the cause of the illness occurred years ago. In such cases, it is the date of knowledge, or diagnosis that matters.
Whether a claim is being made for a road accident in Bristol, a successful compensation claim involves three components. It must be demonstrated that the person or company causing the injury owed you a duty of care, that this duty of care was breached, and this breach caused your illness or injury.
