Making a claim
Claims for personal injury compensation should, in the majority of cases, be made within a 3-year window.
People who have received a diagnosis of a medical condition or illness like asbestosis are frequently still able to claim even where the cause of the illness occurred years ago. The date that you learn of your diagnosis is what starts the three-year time limit in such cases.
To win a personal injury case, your solicitor must demonstrate:
- You were owed a duty of care by the Defendant
- That duty was breached by the Defendant
- The Defendant's breach caused your injury or illness
Starting your claim as soon as possible should allow the lawyer to gather supporting statements from witnesses.
