Making an injury claim
Claims must usually be made within a three-year window.
People with certain illnesses or conditions like noise-induced deafness are frequently still able to claim even if the condition developed as the result of events that happened years ago. The date that you learn of your diagnosis is what is important in such cases.
For most claims, proving an injury claim has three key components. 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
Starting your claim sooner should allow the solicitor to gather evidence and witness statements.
