Have I got a claim for injury compensation?
Updated: September 9, 2016
If you were injured in an accident in the last three years and someone else was responsible, Quittance's panel of solicitors can help you make an injury claim.
People who have received a diagnosis of a medical condition or illness such as hand-arm vibration syndrome are frequently still able to claim even if the illness was triggered by events some years ago. In such cases, it is the date of knowledge, or diagnosis that is considered.
For most claims, making a successful claim has three key components. It needs to be shown that:
- the person or company causing the injury owed you a duty of care
- the duty of care was breached
- this breach caused your illness or injury
Beginning your claim as soon as possible will allow the solicitor to collect useful supporting evidence.Back to top
