Making a personal injury claim
Personal injury claims should be made within 3 years of the injury in most cases.
Claimants who have received a diagnosis of a medical condition or illness like RSI may still be eligible for compensation even if the illness was triggered by events some years ago. The date that you learn of your diagnosis is what is important in these cases.
For most claims, a successful compensation claim has these key elements. It must be proven 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.
The solicitor can take you through these key issues and will explain how they apply to your claim.
