Do I have a claim for injury compensation?

If you suffered an injury in the last three years and another party was at fault, Quittance's panel of solicitors can help you make a compensation claim.

What are the criteria for making a claim?

Claims for compensation should, in most cases, be made within three years of the date of the injury.

For the majority of injury claims, there are three main elements to making a successful claim. It needs to be demonstrated that the person or company causing the injury owed you a duty of care, that this duty of care was breached, and this breach caused your illness or injury.

Beginning your claim as soon as possible should allow the lawyer to help gather useful supporting evidence and witness statements.

How much can I claim?

The injury compensation you are likely to receive depends on a number of factors. Our compensation calculator gives you a good idea of the compensation you could get for your injuries, lost earnings and any other losses.

Slip, trip and fall injuries

Slips and trips are sometimes the cause of injuries attributed to other causes e.g. being struck by moving machinery, when helping another person or an asphyxiation accident. Public place litigation for injuries such as broken collarbones happening on slippery pavements are also quite common with street trips having happened on Main St and on Antermony Rd.
