Making a claim
Claims for personal injury compensation should, in most cases, be made within 3 years of the date you were injured or learned of your injury.
People who have received a diagnosis of a medical condition or illness like industrial deafness may still be eligible for compensation even if the illness was triggered by events some years ago. In such cases, it is the date you are informed of your diagnosis that is important.
In the majority of cases, there are three components to proving a claim. 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 lawyer will discuss each of these key issues and should look at how they apply in your case.
