Do I have a claim for injury compensation?
Updated: September 14, 2016
If you suffered an injury in the last 3 years and another person was at fault, Quittance's panel of solicitors can assist you with a compensation claim.
Qualifying for personal injury compensation
Claimants who have been diagnosed with certain injuries or illnesses like RSI are frequently still able to claim even where the illness's cause happened years or even decades earlier. The date that you learn of your diagnosis is what starts the three-year time limit in such circumstances.
For the majority of injury claims, proving an injury claim involves three components. It must be proven 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 witness statements to be gathered by your solicitor.
How much can I claim?
The amount of financial compensation you are likely to receive is calculated with reference to Judicial College Guidelines. Our claim calculator gives you an estimate of the award or settlement you could be due.
