Making a personal injury claim
Claims for compensation should be made within a three-year window, starting from the date you knew of your injury in the majority of cases.
Extensive legislation exists to provide support for injured people who seek compensation, and our panel of injury lawyers have many years of experience advising clients regarding the strength of their claims.
For the majority of injury claims, there are three components to making a successful claim. It needs to be shown that the person or company causing the injury owed you a duty of care, that this duty of care was breached, and this breach caused your illness or injury.
Starting your claim as soon as possible will enable supporting witness statements to be collected by your lawyer.
