Making an injury claim
Injury claims must be made within 3 years of the injury in the majority of cases.
Claimants who have received a diagnosis of a medical condition or illness like noise-induced deafness are frequently still able to claim even where the cause of the illness occurred years ago. In such cases, it is the date of knowledge, or diagnosis that matters.

Finding the best injury lawyer for your compensation claim
It can take several months for the majority of claims to reach a settlement. Claims where responsibility is contested or the injury has had a major impact can take years in some circumstances.

Your legal representative should be someone you are able to rely on at every step of the process to offer specialist legal guidance and compassionate practical advice.
