Making a personal injury claim

Claims for compensation should be made within three years of an injury in the majority of cases.

People who have been diagnosed with an illness or medical condition like industrial deafness may still be eligible for compensation even where the cause of the illness occurred years ago. The date of diagnosis is what starts the three-year time limit in these cases.

For the majority of injury claims, there are three components to making a successful claim. It must be demonstrated on the balance of probabilities 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 sooner will enable the solicitor to gather supporting statements from witnesses.
