Making an injury claim
Extensive legislation is in place to support people seeking compensation, and Quittance's panel of injury solicitors have years of experience advising clients on the strength of their claims.
Claimants with certain illnesses or conditions such as asbestosis are frequently still able to claim even if the illness was triggered by events some years ago. In these circumstances, it is the date that you learn of your diagnosis that is considered.
Whether claiming for a work-related illness in Dalbeattie or road accident, there are three main elements to proving a claim. It must 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.
The lawyer can take you through these points and should explain how they apply to your claim.
