Have I got a injury claim?
If you were injured in the last three years and someone else was to blame, Quittance can help you make a claim.
What are the criteria for making a claim?
Claims must, in most cases, be made within a 3-year window, starting from the date the injury occurred.
Claimants with certain illnesses or conditions like noise-induced deafness are often still entitled to claim compensation even where the cause of the illness occurred years ago. The date of diagnosis is what matters in these situations.
For most claims, proving an injury claim has three key elements. It must be proven on the balance of probabilities that:
- a duty of care was owed
- that the duty was breached
- the breach was the cause of the injury or illness
