Making a personal injury claim
Claims must be made within three years of an injury in the majority of cases.
People who have received a diagnosis of a medical condition or illness like RSI are often still entitled to claim compensation even where the cause of the illness occurred years ago. In such cases, it is the date of diagnosis that is considered.
For most claims, there are three key components to proving a claim. 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
