Making an injury claim
Injury claims should, in the majority of cases, be made within 3 years of an injury.
Extensive legislation exists to support injured people who seek compensation, and our panel of lawyers have years of experience advising clients regarding the strength of their claims.
In order to successfully win an injury claim, it should be demonstrated that:
- 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
The solicitor can take you through these points and will look at how they apply in your case.
