Do I have a personal injury claim?
Updated: September 9, 2016
If you were injured in the last 3 years and a third party was to blame, our panel of expert solicitors can assist you with a claim.
Claims for personal injury compensation must be made within three years of the date of the injury in the majority of cases.
To win a personal injury case, 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
Your solicitor will discuss these points and will explain how they apply to your claim.
What is my claim worth?
The personal injury compensation you will receive is based on the seriousness of your injuries. Our injury calculator provides a realistic idea of the compensation you will receive for your injuries and financial losses.
