Whether you live in Higham Ferrers or anywhere else in England or Wales, our personal injury solicitors can take on your claim and we will always arrange a medical assessment at a medical centre near you.

Making a personal injury claim

Powerful legislation exists to support injured people who seek compensation, and Quittance's network of personal injury lawyers have years of experience giving advice to clients on the likelihood of success.

People who have received a diagnosis of a medical condition or illness like asbestosis are frequently still able to claim even if the illness was triggered by events some years ago. The date that you learn of your diagnosis is what is important in such cases.

In the majority of cases, there are three key components to proving a claim. It must be shown that:

  • a duty of care was owed
  • that the duty was breached
  • the breach was the cause of the injury or illness
