Making a personal injury claim
Purposeful legislation exists to provide support for Claimants seeking compensation for their injuries, and our network of specialist lawyers have years of experience giving advice to clients with regard to the strength of their claims.
People who have been diagnosed with an illness or medical condition such as mesothelioma may still be eligible for compensation even if the illness was triggered by events some years ago. The date of diagnosis is what starts the three-year time limit in such circumstances.
In most cases, there are three main elements to proving a claim. It needs to be demonstrated 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.
In all cases, a short, free call with an expert lawyer can provide answers and useful advice.
