Do I have a claim for injury compensation?

If you suffered an injury or illness, or became aware of an injury, in the last three years and another party was liable, Quittance's panel of solicitors can help you make a claim for compensation.

Do I have a claim?

Qualifying for personal injury compensation

Injury claims should usually be made within three years.

For most claims, a successful compensation claim involves three components. It needs to be proven that the person or company causing the injury owed you a duty of care, that this duty of care was breached, and this breach caused your illness or injury.

Making your claim as soon as possible will enable witness statements to be gathered by the solicitor.

Find out how much you can claim

The level of compensation you will be awarded is based on a number of factors. Our compensation calculator gives you a good idea of the compensation you could get for your injuries, lost earnings and any other losses.

Slip and trip injuries

Health and Saftey Executive data show that slips, trips and falls are the most prevalent cause of accidents leading to injury at work. Slips, trips and falls are frequently the precursor to injuries categorised as something else e.g. being hit by an object falling from a lifting machinery or a lake drowning accident. Public place compensation claims for injuries such as torn ligaments occurring on poorly maintained paths are also common with pothole trips having occurred on Victoria Road and on Leven Rd.
