Making a claim
Injury claims must, in most cases, be made within 3 years of the injury.
People who have been diagnosed with an illness or medical condition like asbestosis are frequently still able to claim even if the condition developed as the result of events that happened years ago. In these circumstances, it is the date of knowledge, or diagnosis that matters.
In order to successfully win an injury claim, it should be demonstrated that:
- You were owed a duty of care by the Defendant
- That duty was breached by the Defendant
- The Defendant's breach caused your injury or illness
