Do I have a compensation claim?
If you were injured in an accident in the last three years and another party was responsible, our panel of award-winning solicitors can help you make an injury claim.
Claimants who have been diagnosed with certain injuries or illnesses such as industrial deafness are frequently still able to claim even if the condition developed as the result of events that happened years ago. In these circumstances, it is the date that you learn of your diagnosis that matters.
For most claims, there are three main elements to proving a claim. It needs to be demonstrated that:
- a duty of care was owed
- that the duty was breached
- the breach was the cause of the injury or illness
How much can I claim?
The amount of compensation that you are likely to be awarded is calculated with reference to a number of factors. Our compensation calculator gives a good idea of the compensation you could get for your injuries, lost earnings and any other losses.
