Making an injury claim
Claims for personal injury compensation should be made within a 3-year window in the majority of cases.
Claimants who have been diagnosed with an illness or medical condition like RSI are often still entitled to claim compensation even where the illness's cause happened years or even decades earlier. The date of knowledge, or diagnosis is what is important in these situations.
Whether a claim is being made for a road accident in Laurieston or slip or trip, there are three components to a successful personal injury claim. It must be demonstrated that a duty of care was owed, that this duty was breached, and the breach was the cause of the injury or illness.
The solicitor will look at how your case relates to the points.
