Whether you live in Chinnor or anywhere in the country, our personal injury solicitors are able to assist with your claim and we will always arrange a medical at a local medical centre.
Making a personal injury claim
Claims must be made within a 3-year window in the majority of cases.
People who have been diagnosed with an illness or medical condition like asbestosis are often still entitled to claim compensation even where the cause of the illness occurred years ago. In such cases, it is the date of knowledge, or diagnosis that is considered.
For most claims, a successful compensation claim has these key elements. It needs to be shown that a duty of care was owed, that this duty was breached, and the breach was the cause of the injury or illness.
In all cases, answers and useful advice can be provided by a short, free consultation with an expert Chinnor lawyer.
