Making an injury claim

Claims should, in most cases, be made within three years of the date the accident occurred or you learned of the injury.

Claimants who have been diagnosed with certain injuries or illnesses like asbestosis are often still entitled to claim compensation even where the cause of the illness occurred years ago. In these circumstances, it is the date you are informed of your diagnosis that is considered.

In most cases, making a successful claim has these key elements. It needs to 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.

Answers and both practical and legal advice will be provided by a short, free consultation with a personal injury solicitor.

What issues to consider when choosing the right injury lawyer

In most cases a injury claim can take months to agree a settlement. In cases of serious injury, claims may run for one or two years. All solicitors are regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA), but the level of service offered by different firms varies.

Considering the effect your legal representative can have on your recovery, finding a solicitor that matches your needs is vital.
