Making an injury claim
Injury claims must be made within a 3-year window, starting from the date the injury occurred in most cases.
People who have been diagnosed with certain injuries or illnesses such as mesothelioma may still be eligible for compensation even if the condition developed as the result of events that happened years ago. In these circumstances, it is the date of diagnosis that is considered.
For the majority of injury claims, making a successful claim will involve three issues. It must be demonstrated on the balance of probabilities that a duty of care was owed, that this duty was breached, and the breach was the cause of the injury or illness.
Making your claim sooner will enable your lawyer to help gather useful supporting evidence and witness statements.
