Do I have a injury claim?
If you have been injured, or were diagnosed with an injury or illness, in the last 3 years and another person owed you a duty of care, Quittance can assist you with a claim for financial compensation.
Eligibility to claim
People who have been diagnosed with an illness or medical condition such as asbestosis are often still entitled to claim compensation even where the illness's cause happened years or even decades earlier. The date that you learn of your diagnosis is what matters in such circumstances.
In order to win a Mirfield personal injury case, it must be shown that:
- The defendant owed you a duty of care
- The defendant breached that duty
- Your injury or illness was caused by that breach
In all cases, a short, free call with an Mirfield injury lawyer can provide answers and useful advice.Back to top
