Making a personal injury claim
Claims for personal injury compensation must, in the majority of cases, be made within three years of the date the accident occurred or you learned of the injury.
Extensive legislation is in place to give support to injured Claimants, and Quittance's network of injury lawyers have years of experience giving advice to their clients regarding the likelihood of success.
To win a personal injury case, your lawyer must prove:
- 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
Starting your claim as soon as possible will allow your lawyer to help collate supporting witness statements and other evidence.
