Can I make a claim?
Updated: September 18, 2016
If you were injured in the last 3 years and another person was to blame, we can assist you with a claim.
Elligibility to make a personal injury claim
Claimants who have been diagnosed with certain injuries or illnesses such as industrial deafness may still be eligible for compensation even if the condition developed as the result of events that happened years ago. In these circumstances, it is the date of diagnosis that matters.
For most claims, there are three components to making a successful claim. It must be demonstrated 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.
The lawyer should look at how your case will relate to each of these points.Back to top
