Making an injury claim
Extensive legislation is in place to give support to people planning to make a claim, and Quittance's network of solicitors have years of experience advising clients with regard to the likelihood of success.
Claimants who have been diagnosed with certain injuries or illnesses like mesothelioma may still be eligible for compensation even if the illness was triggered by events some years ago. The date that you learn of your diagnosis is what matters in such cases.
In order to successfully win an injury claim, your solicitor must prove:
- 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
Starting your claim sooner should allow your solicitor to help collate supporting witness statements and other evidence.
