Making a claim
Considerable legislation is in place to support injured people who seek compensation, and Quittance's panel of lawyers have many years of experience advising their clients on the likelihood of success.
People who have received a diagnosis of a medical condition or illness such as industrial deafness are often still entitled to claim compensation even if the condition developed as the result of events that happened years ago. In these circumstances, it is the date of diagnosis that is important.
In order to win a Malmesbury personal injury case, your solicitor must demonstrate:
- You were owed a duty of care by the Defendant
- That duty was breached by the Defendant
- The Defendant's breach caused your injury or illness
Your solicitor should consider how your injury claim will relate to these issues.
