Making a personal injury claim
Purposeful legislation exists to provide support for injured Claimants, and Quittance's network of expert solicitors have many years of experience advising clients regarding the strength of their claims.
Claimants who have been diagnosed with certain injuries or illnesses like industrial 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 knowledge, or diagnosis that matters.
In order to win a Spalding personal injury case, your solicitor must prove:
- The Defendant owed you a duty of care
- The Defendant breached that duty
- Your injury or illness was caused by that breach
Making your claim sooner will enable witness statements to be gathered by the lawyer.
