Have I got a claim for compensation?
If you suffered an injury or illness, or became aware of an injury, in the last three years and someone else was liable, our personal injury solicitors can help you make a claim for compensation.
What are the criteria for making a claim?
Claims should be made within three years of an injury in the majority of cases.
In most cases, there are three elements to making a successful claim. It needs to be demonstrated that:
- a duty of care was owed
- that the duty was breached
- the breach was the cause of the injury or illness
Getting your claim started sooner will enable evidence and witness statements to be gathered in support of your claim by the lawyer.
