Making an injury claim
Claims should, in most cases, be made within 3 years of the date you were injured or learned of your injury.
Claimants who have been diagnosed with certain injuries or illnesses such as asbestosis are frequently still able to claim even if the condition developed as the result of events that happened years ago. In such cases, it is the date you are informed of your diagnosis that matters.
For the majority of injury claims, there are three components to a successful personal injury claim. It must be shown on the balance of probabilities that a duty of care was owed, that this duty was breached, and the breach was the cause of the injury or illness.
A short, free call with an injury lawyer will provide answers and advice.
