Making an injury claim
Injury claims must be made within a 3-year window, starting from the date the injury occurred in the majority of cases.
Claimants who have been diagnosed with certain injuries or illnesses like industrial deafness may still be eligible for compensation even where the illness's cause happened years or even decades earlier. In such cases, it is the date of knowledge, or diagnosis that matters.
Whether compensation is being claimed for a road accident or work-related illness, proving an injury claim will involve three issues. It must be proven that a duty of care was owed, that this duty was breached, and the breach was the cause of the injury or illness.
Beginning your claim as soon as possible should allow the solicitor to help gather useful supporting evidence and witness statements.
