Making a personal injury claim
Personal injury claims must usually be made within a 3-year window.
Claimants with certain illnesses or conditions like mesothelioma are frequently still able to claim even where the illness's cause happened years or even decades earlier. The date you are informed of your diagnosis is what is important in these situations.
Whether claiming for a road accident or work-related illness, making a successful claim has three key components. It must be shown that:
- the person or company causing the injury owed you a duty of care
- the duty of care was breached
- this breach caused your illness or injury
Beginning your claim as soon as possible should allow your lawyer to help collate supporting witness statements and other evidence.
Choosing the right injury lawyer
