Making an injury claim
Considerable legislation is in place to support injured Claimants, and Quittance's panel of lawyers have years of experience advising their clients regarding the strength of their claims.
People who have been diagnosed with an illness or medical condition like repetitive strain injuries may still be eligible for compensation even if the condition developed as the result of events that happened years ago. In these circumstances, it is the date of knowledge, or diagnosis that matters.
For most claims, proving an injury claim involves three components. It needs to be proven that:
- the person or company causing the injury owed you a duty of care
- the duty of care was breached
- this breach caused your illness or injury
