Can I make a claim?

If you suffered an injury in the last three years and another party was at fault, we can help you make a compensation claim.

Qualifying for personal injury compensation

Claims should usually be made within a 3-year window.

Claimants who have been diagnosed with certain injuries or illnesses such as industrial deafness may still be eligible for compensation even if the condition developed as the result of events that happened years ago. In these circumstances, it is the date of knowledge, or diagnosis that matters.

In most cases, a successful compensation claim involves three components. It must be proven that:

  • a duty of care was owed
  • that the duty was breached
  • the breach was the cause of the injury or illness

A brief, no-obligation call with an expert Denny solicitor will give information and useful advice.

How much compensation could I get?

The injury compensation you are likely to receive will depend on a variety of factors. Our easy to use compensation calculator provides a good idea of your potential compensation award.
