Making a claim

Considerable legislation is in place to support Claimants seeking compensation for their injuries, and our network of personal injury lawyers have years of experience advising their clients on the strength of their claims.
For most claims, there are three main elements to making a successful claim. It needs to be demonstrated that:
- a duty of care was owed
- that the duty was breached
- the breach was the cause of the injury or illness
Answers and both practical and legal advice can be given on a short, no-obligation phone consultation with a personal injury solicitor.
