Making a claim
Powerful legislation is in place to support individuals considering a claim, and our panel of injury solicitors have many years of experience advising their clients on the likelihood of success.
Claimants with certain illnesses or conditions like hand-arm vibration syndrome are often still entitled to claim compensation even where the cause of the illness occurred years ago. In these circumstances, it is the date of knowledge, or diagnosis that is important.
To win a personal injury case, your lawyer must demonstrate that the Defendant owed you a duty of care, that the Defendant breached that duty, and that your injury or illness was caused by that breach.
Starting your claim as soon as possible will allow the lawyer to gather supporting statements from witnesses.
