Making a claim
Personal injury claims should, in most cases, be made within three years of the date the accident occurred or you learned of the injury.
Claimants who have been diagnosed with certain injuries or illnesses like hand-arm vibration syndrome may still be eligible for compensation even where the illness's cause happened years or even decades earlier. In such cases, it is the date of diagnosis that matters.
In most cases, there are three key components to proving a claim. It needs to 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
In all cases, answers and invaluable guidance will be provided by a short, free consultation with an expert lawyer.
