Making a personal injury claim
Claims for compensation should, in most cases, be made within 3 years of the injury.
Claimants who have been diagnosed with certain injuries or illnesses like hand-arm vibration syndrome may still be eligible for compensation even where the cause of the illness occurred years ago. In these circumstances, it is the date that you learn of your diagnosis that matters.
For most claims, proving an injury claim has these key elements. It must be demonstrated that:
- a duty of care was owed
- that the duty was breached
- the breach was the cause of the injury or illness
