What is my claim worth?

The amount of financial compensation you are likely to receive is calculated with reference to Judicial College Guidelines. Our easy to use injury calculator provides a realistic idea of your likely compensation.

Making a claim

Extensive legislation exists to support injured Claimants, and Quittance's network of personal injury solicitors have many years of experience advising their clients regarding the strength of their claims.

Claimants with certain illnesses or conditions such as RSI are frequently still able to claim even if the illness was triggered by events some years ago. The date you are informed of your diagnosis is what starts the three-year time limit in these cases.

Whether claiming for a road accident in Moira or slip or trip, there are three key components to a successful personal injury claim. It must be shown that:

  • a duty of care was owed
  • that the duty was breached
  • the breach was the cause of the injury or illness

In all cases, a brief, no-obligation call with a Moira-specialist solicitor can give information and useful advice.
