Making a personal injury claim
Claims must, in most cases, be made within 3 years of the date you were injured or learned of your injury.
Claimants who have received a diagnosis of a medical condition or illness like noise-induced deafness are often still entitled to claim compensation even where the cause of the illness occurred years ago. In these circumstances, it is the date of diagnosis that is important.
For the majority of injury claims, a successful compensation claim will involve three issues. It must be shown that:
- the person or company causing the injury owed you a duty of care
- the duty of care was breached
- this breach caused your illness or injury
A no-obligation phone call with a specialist solicitor can give answers and invaluable guidance.
