Making a claim
Claims for personal injury compensation should, in the majority of cases, be made within three years of the date of the injury.
For most claims, proving a claim has these key elements. It must be demonstrated that:
- the person or company causing the injury owed you a duty of care
- the duty of care was breached
- this breach caused your illness or injury
Answers to your questions and useful guidance can be provided by a brief, no-obligation consultation with a Hillingdon personal injury solicitor.
