If you have been injured, or were diagnosed with an injury or illness, in the last 3 years and another person owed you a duty of care, Quittance's panel of solicitors can assist you with a claim for financial compensation.
Qualifying for personal injury compensation
A claim must usually be made within three years of the date of the injury.
To win a personal injury case, it must be proven 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.
