Making a personal injury claim
Injury claims must, in most cases, be made within a 3-year window.
Extensive legislation is in place to give support to individuals considering a claim, and Quittance's panel of injury solicitors have years of experience advising their clients regarding the strength of their claims.
For most claims, proving an injury claim has three key components. It needs to be shown 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.
Starting your claim sooner will enable the solicitor to gather supporting statements from witnesses.
