Making a personal injury claim
Personal injury claims must, in most cases, be made within 3 years of an injury.
Claimants who have been diagnosed with certain injuries or illnesses such as asbestosis may still be eligible for compensation even where the cause of the illness occurred years ago. The date you are informed of your diagnosis is what matters in these situations.
In the majority of cases, proving a claim has three key components. It must be shown 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.
How to pick the right injury lawyer for you
You will be in contact with your legal representative for a long period of time, from several months for minor and moderate injury to potentially years for complex cases. The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) regulates all solicitors, however the quality of service does vary.
Your legal representative should be someone you can rely on throughout the claims process to give expert legal guidance and compassionate practical advice.
