Making an injury claim
Claims for compensation must, in the majority of cases, be made within 3 years of the date you were injured or learned of your injury.
In the majority of cases, a successful compensation claim has these key elements. It must be proven that the person or company causing the injury owed you a duty of care, that this duty of care was breached, and this breach caused your illness or injury.
Your lawyer can take you through these issues and will explain how they apply to your claim.
