Making a personal injury claim
Extensive legislation exists to support injured people who seek compensation, and Quittance's network of specialist solicitors have many years of experience advising clients regarding the strength of their claims.
People who have received a diagnosis of a medical condition or illness such as RSI are often still entitled to claim compensation even if the condition developed as the result of events that happened years ago. The date that you learn of your diagnosis is what starts the three-year time limit in such cases.
