If you live in Grimsby or anywhere else in England or Wales, our experienced personal injury solicitors can help with your claim and we will set up a medical assessment at a medical centre near your home.
Making a claim
Personal injury claims should be made within three years of the date of the injury in most cases.
People who have been diagnosed with an illness or medical condition like noise-induced deafness may still be eligible for compensation even where the cause of the illness occurred years ago. The date that you learn of your diagnosis is what is important in these cases.
In order to successfully win an injury claim, your lawyer must demonstrate that the Defendant owed you a duty of care, that this duty of care was breached by the Defendant, and the breach was the cause of your injury.
In all cases, a free phone call with an expert Grimsby lawyer can give answers and invaluable guidance.
