Can I make a claim for compensation?
Updated: September 18, 2016
If you suffered an injury or illness, or became aware of an injury, in the last 3 years and another person was liable, our personal injury solicitors can assist you with a claim for compensation.
What are the criteria for making a claim?
People who have received a diagnosis of a medical condition or illness like industrial deafness may still be eligible for compensation even where the illness's cause happened years or even decades earlier. In such cases, it is the date you are informed of your diagnosis that is important.
In order to win a Mexborough personal injury case, your solicitor must demonstrate that the Defendant owed you a duty of care, that this duty of care was breached by the Defendant, and the breach was the cause of your injury.
How much can I claim?
The compensation you will be awarded depends on a number of criteria. Our easy to use claim calculator provides you with an estimate of the compensation you could get for your injuries and costs incurred.
