Whether you are based in Teignmouth or anywhere in the UK, our experienced lawyers will assist with your claim and we will set up a medical report at a medical centre near your home.
Can I make a claim?
If you have been injured, or were diagnosed with an injury or illness, in the last three years and someone else owed you a duty of care, we can help you make a claim for financial compensation.
Eligibility to claim
Compensation claims must, in the majority of cases, be made within a three-year window.
Claimants with certain illnesses or conditions such as mesothelioma are often still entitled to claim compensation even where the cause of the illness occurred years ago. The date of diagnosis is what matters in such cases.
In order to successfully win an injury claim, your solicitor must demonstrate:
- The defendant owed you a duty of care
- The defendant breached that duty
- Your injury or illness was caused by that breach
A short, free call with a Teignmouth-specialist lawyer can provide answers and useful advice.
How much can I claim?
The financial compensation you are likely to get is based on a number of factors. Our easy to use calculator provides an accurate estimate of your likely award or settlement.
