Have I got a injury claim?
Updated: September 14, 2016
If you were injured in an accident in the last three years and someone else was responsible, Quittance can help you make an injury claim.
What are the criteria for making a claim?
Claims for compensation should be made within a 3-year window, starting from the date the injury occurred in the majority of cases.
For the majority of injury claims, proving an injury claim involves three components. It needs to be shown that the person or company causing the injury owed you a duty of care, that this duty of care was breached, and this breach caused your illness or injury.
Getting your claim started sooner will allow your lawyer to collect useful supporting evidence.Back to top
How much can I claim?
The amount of compensation that you are likely to be awarded will depend on a number of factors. Our online calculator gives an accurate estimate of the compensation you could get for your injuries.
