Making a personal injury claim
Claims for compensation must, in most cases, be made within 3 years of the date you were injured or learned of your injury.
People who have been diagnosed with an illness or medical condition such as mesothelioma are frequently still able to claim even where the illness's cause happened years or even decades earlier. In these circumstances, it is the date of knowledge, or diagnosis that is considered.
In order to win a Camborne personal injury case, your solicitor 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
Starting your claim as soon as possible should allow your lawyer to help gather useful supporting evidence and witness statements.
The importance of choosing the best no win no fee personal injury lawyer for your injury

How do you ensure you instruct the most appropriate legal practice to take on your case?
