Making a claim
Purposeful legislation exists to provide support for individuals considering a claim, and Quittance's network of solicitors have many years of experience giving advice to their clients on the strength of their claims.
People who have received a diagnosis of a medical condition or illness like RSI are frequently still able to claim even if the illness was triggered by events some years ago. The date you are informed of your diagnosis is what matters in such cases.
In order to successfully win an injury claim, it must be proven that:
- The Defendant owed you a duty of care
- The Defendant breached that duty
- Your injury or illness was caused by that breach
Your lawyer can take you through each of these key points and should explain how they apply to your claim.
