Making a personal injury claim

People who have been diagnosed with certain injuries or illnesses such as industrial deafness are often still entitled to claim compensation even if the illness was triggered by events some years ago. The date that you learn of your diagnosis is what is important in these cases.
To win a personal injury case, it should be demonstrated that:
- The Defendant owed you a duty of care
- The Defendant breached that duty
- Your injury or illness was caused by that breach
