Making an injury claim
Injury claims must, in the majority of cases, be made within three years of the date the accident occurred or you learned of the injury.
Purposeful legislation exists to provide support for people planning to make a claim, and our network of injury solicitors have many years of experience advising their clients with regard to the likelihood of success.
For the majority of injury claims, there are three elements to proving a claim. It needs to be demonstrated 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
The solicitor will look at how each of these points will relate to your injury claim.
