Making a claim
Compensation claims must, in the majority of cases, be made within a three-year window, starting from the date you knew of your injury.
People with certain illnesses or conditions such as asbestosis 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 that you learn of your diagnosis that matters.
In order to successfully win an injury claim, your lawyer must demonstrate that the Defendant owed you a duty of care, that the Defendant breached that duty, and that your injury or illness was caused by that breach.
A no-obligation phone consultation with a Marlborough-specialist solicitor can provide answers and advice.
