No matter whether you live in New Romney or anywhere else in England or Wales, our experienced solicitors are able to assist with your claim and we will set up a medical assessment at a local medical centre.
Making a personal injury claim
Injury claims must usually be made within 3 years of the date you were injured or learned of your injury.
Claimants who have been diagnosed with an illness or medical condition like RSI are often still entitled to claim compensation even where the illness's cause happened years or even decades earlier. In these circumstances, it is the date that you learn of your diagnosis that is important.
In most cases, proving an injury claim will involve three issues. 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
