Making a claim
Compensation claims must usually be made within a 3-year window, starting from the date the injury occurred.
People who have received a diagnosis of a medical condition or illness like mesothelioma are often still entitled to claim compensation even where the illness's cause happened years or even decades earlier. In these circumstances, it is the date of knowledge, or diagnosis that matters.
To win a personal injury case, it must be proven that the Defendant owed you a duty of care, that the Defendant breached that duty, and that your injury or illness was caused by that breach.
Beginning your claim sooner will enable supporting witness statements to be collected by your lawyer.
The importance of choosing the best no win no fee personal injury lawyer for your needs
Choosing a suitable personal injury lawyer to help you is the most important step towards securing the best compensation award for your injuries.
