Making an injury claim
Claims for personal injury compensation should, in the majority of cases, be made within a 3-year window, starting from the date the injury occurred.
Claimants with certain illnesses or conditions such as noise-induced deafness are frequently still able to claim even where the illness's cause happened years or even decades earlier. In these circumstances, it is the date you are informed of your diagnosis that is considered.
For most claims, making a successful claim has three key components. It must be demonstrated on the balance of probabilities that a duty of care was owed, that this duty was breached, and the breach was the cause of the injury or illness.
Starting your claim as soon as possible will enable supporting witness statements to be collected by your lawyer.
