Making an injury claim

For the majority of injury claims, a successful compensation claim will involve three issues. It must be demonstrated 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
Answers and both practical and legal advice will be provided by a brief, no-obligation consultation with an injury lawyer.
