Making a personal injury claim
Claims for personal injury compensation should be made within three years of an injury in the majority of cases.
In most cases, proving an injury claim involves three components. It needs to be demonstrated 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.
A no-obligation phone call with a specialist lawyer can provide answers and advice.
