Making a personal injury claim
Compensation claims must, in the majority of cases, be made within 3 years of an injury.
People who have been diagnosed with an illness or medical condition such as repetitive strain injuries may still be eligible for compensation even where the cause of the illness occurred years ago. The date you are informed of your diagnosis is what is important in such cases.
To win a Ripon personal injury case, your solicitor must prove:
- The Defendant owed you a duty of care
- The Defendant breached that duty
- Your injury or illness was caused by that breach
