If you live in Denbighshire or anywhere else in the UK, our experienced injury lawyers are able to manage your claim and we will set up a medical at a medical centre near you.
Making a claim
Claims should be made within three years of the date the accident occurred or you learned of the injury in the majority of cases.
People who have received a diagnosis of a medical condition or illness like RSI are often still entitled to claim compensation even if the illness was triggered by events some years ago. In these circumstances, it is the date of diagnosis that is considered.
In the majority of cases, a successful compensation claim has three key components. It must be proven on the balance of probabilities that:
- a duty of care was owed
- that the duty was breached
- the breach was the cause of the injury or illness
