Have I got a compensation claim?
If you have been injured, or were diagnosed with an injury or illness, in the last three years and someone else owed you a duty of care, our panel of award-winning solicitors can help you make a claim for financial compensation.
Qualifying for personal injury compensation
Claims must, in the majority of cases, be made within a 3-year window, starting from the date the injury occurred.
In the majority of cases, there are three elements to making a successful claim. It needs to be proven that:
- a duty of care was owed
- that the duty was breached
- the breach was the cause of the injury or illness
Legal and practical advice will be given on a short, no-obligation phone consultation with a personal injury solicitor.
