Making a personal injury claim
Claims for personal injury compensation should usually be made within three years of the date of the injury.
Claimants with certain illnesses or conditions like mesothelioma may still be eligible for compensation even if the illness was triggered by events some years ago. In such cases, it is the date of knowledge, or diagnosis that is important.
Whether claiming for a work-related illness or road accident, proving a claim has these key elements. It must be proven that:
- a duty of care was owed
- that the duty was breached
- the breach was the cause of the injury or illness
A brief, no-obligation call with a specialist solicitor will provide information and invaluable guidance.
