A guide to making a personal injury claim

By Jonathan Speight

Whether you are based in Hoylake or anywhere in the UK, our injury lawyers will assist with your claim and we will always set up a medical report at a medical centre near you.

Have I got a claim?

If you suffered an injury in the last 3 years and a third party was at fault, we can assist you with a compensation claim.

Elligibility to make a personal injury claim

Claimants who have been diagnosed with certain injuries or illnesses such as asbestosis are frequently still able to claim even where the illness's cause happened years or even decades earlier. The date you are informed of your diagnosis is what is important in such circumstances.

In the majority of cases, proving a claim has three key components. It must be shown 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.

Information and legal advice can be provided by a free phone consultation with an Hoylake injury lawyer.
