Making an injury claim
Personal injury claims must, in most cases, be made within three years of the date of the injury.
Claimants with certain illnesses or conditions like industrial deafness are frequently still able to claim even where the cause of the illness occurred years ago. The date that you learn of your diagnosis is what starts the three-year time limit in these cases.
Whether compensation is being claimed for a road accident in Woburn Sands or work-related illness, there are three components to proving a claim. It needs to be proven 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 sooner will enable statements from witnesses to be gathered by your solicitor.
