Making a personal injury claim

Claimants who have been diagnosed with certain injuries or illnesses like mesothelioma are frequently still able to claim even if the illness was triggered by events some years ago. In such cases, it is the date you are informed of your diagnosis that matters.
To win a Burntisland personal injury case, your solicitor must prove that the Defendant owed you a duty of care, that the Defendant breached that duty, and that your injury or illness was caused by that breach.
The solicitor can take you through each of these key points and should look at how they apply in your case.
