Making an injury claim
Claims must be made within three years of the date of the injury in the majority of cases.
People who have been diagnosed with certain injuries or illnesses such as industrial deafness are often still entitled to claim compensation even where the illness's cause happened years or even decades earlier. In such cases, it is the date you are informed of your diagnosis that matters.
For the majority of injury claims, proving an injury claim has these key elements. It must be proven on the balance of probabilities that:
- a duty of care was owed
- that the duty was breached
- the breach was the cause of the injury or illness
