Making an injury claim

Claimants who have received a diagnosis of a medical condition or illness like RSI may still be eligible for compensation even if the condition developed as the result of events that happened years ago. The date of diagnosis is what matters in these situations.
To win a personal injury case, your solicitor must prove that the Defendant owed you a duty of care, that this duty of care was breached by the Defendant, and the breach was the cause of your injury.

What is the best way to make sure you select the ideal company to instruct?
The diversity in the amount of success fees and insurance premiums charged by lawyers is an important consideration for Claimants.
