Making an injury claim
Personal injury claims should, in most cases, be made within a 3-year window.
Considerable legislation exists to support Claimants seeking compensation for their injuries, and our network of lawyers have years of experience advising clients regarding the strength of their claims.
In the majority of cases, proving a claim involves three components. It must be shown on the balance of probabilities that a duty of care was owed, that this duty was breached, and the breach was the cause of the injury or illness.
Your lawyer will consider how these issues will relate to your claim.

The SRA are responsible for regulating legal advice given by solicitors, however they are not required to monitor many issues of interest to Claimants, such as speed or level of service.
Your legal representative should be someone you are able to rely on throughout the claims process to offer specialist legal guidance and practical advice.
