People who have received a diagnosis of a medical condition or illness like repetitive strain injuries may still be eligible for compensation even if the illness was triggered by events some years ago. In these circumstances, it is the date you are informed of your diagnosis that is important.

- 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
