Can I make a injury claim?
If you were injured in the last 3 years and a third party was to blame, Quittance can assist you with a claim.
Eligibility to claim
People who have received a diagnosis of a medical condition or illness such as noise-induced deafness may still be eligible for compensation even where the illness's cause happened years or even decades earlier. In these circumstances, it is the date of diagnosis that is considered.
For the majority of injury claims, making a successful claim involves three components. It must be demonstrated that a duty of care was owed, that this duty was breached, and the breach was the cause of the injury or illness.
Getting your claim started sooner will enable supporting evidence to be collected to strength by your solicitor.Back to top
