Making an injury claim
Considerable legislation exists to provide support for injured Claimants, and our network of injury lawyers have years of experience advising clients on the strength of their claims.
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.

Given the impact your lawyer can have on your experience of making a claim, choosing a lawyer that matches your needs is vital.
