Making a claim
Compensation claims should be made within three years of the date of the injury in the majority of cases.
Claimants who have received a diagnosis of a medical condition or illness like repetitive strain injuries are frequently still able to claim even where the illness's cause happened years or even decades earlier. The date that you learn of your diagnosis is what is important in these situations.
For the majority of injury claims, making a successful claim will involve three issues. It needs to be demonstrated that a duty of care was owed, that this duty was breached, and the breach was the cause of the injury or illness.
Your lawyer should explain how your case relates to these issues.
