Making an injury claim
Claims must, in most cases, be made within 3 years of the date you were injured or learned of your injury.
Considerable legislation is in place to support people planning to make a claim, and Quittance's network of solicitors have years of experience advising their clients on the likelihood of success.
In most cases, a successful compensation claim will involve three issues. It must be demonstrated on the balance of probabilities that the person or company causing the injury owed you a duty of care, that this duty of care was breached, and this breach caused your illness or injury.
Making your claim sooner should enable the lawyer to help gather useful supporting evidence and witness statements.
