Making a personal injury claim
Claims must usually be made within 3 years of an injury.
In the majority of cases, making a successful claim will involve three issues. It must be demonstrated on the balance of probabilities that:
- a duty of care was owed
- that the duty was breached
- the breach was the cause of the injury or illness
Your solicitor can take you through these issues and should explain how they apply to your claim.
