Can I make a compensation claim?

What are the criteria for making a claim?
Claimants who have been diagnosed with certain injuries or illnesses such as industrial deafness are frequently still able to claim even where the illness's cause happened years or even decades earlier. The date you are informed of your diagnosis is what is important in such circumstances.
For the majority of injury claims, there are three elements to a successful personal injury claim. It must be demonstrated on the balance of probabilities 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
In all cases, a short, free consultation with a North Walsham-specialist solicitor will provide information and invaluable guidance.Back to top
