No matter whether you live in Burwell or anywhere else in England or Wales, our experienced personal injury lawyers are able to take on your claim and we will always arrange a medical assessment at a medical centre near your home.
Making an injury claim
Extensive legislation exists to provide support for people seeking compensation, and our panel of injury lawyers have many years of experience advising clients with regard to the likelihood of success.
Claimants who have been diagnosed with an illness or medical condition such as mesothelioma may still be eligible for compensation even where the cause of the illness occurred years ago. The date you are informed of your diagnosis is what matters in these situations.
In order to successfully win an injury claim, your lawyer must demonstrate:
- You were owed a duty of care by the Defendant
- That duty was breached by the Defendant
- The Defendant's breach caused your injury or illness
Answers to your questions and practical guidance can be provided by a brief, no-obligation consultation with a specialist solicitor.
