Have I got a claim for compensation?
If you have been injured, or were diagnosed with an injury or illness, in the last three years and someone else owed you a duty of care, our personal injury solicitors can help you make a claim for financial compensation.
Eligibility to claim
Claims should usually be made within a three-year window, starting from the date you knew of your injury.
People who have received a diagnosis of a medical condition or illness such as 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 is important.
In order to win a Loughton personal injury case, your lawyer must prove that the defendant owed you a duty of care, that this duty of care was breached by the defendant, and the breach was the cause of your injury.

The financial compensation you are likely to get is dependent on the nature and seriousness of your injuries. Our online calculator provides you with an accurate estimate of the compensation you could get for your injuries.
