Do I have a claim?

Eligibility to claim

Claims must be made within a three-year window in the majority of cases.

To win a personal injury case, your lawyer must demonstrate:

  • You were owed a duty of care by the defendant
  • That duty was breached by the defendant
  • The defendant's breach caused your injury or illness

How much can I claim?

The amount of financial compensation you are likely to receive will depend on a number of points. Our injury calculator provides a realistic idea of the compensation you will receive for your injuries and financial losses.
