Making a claim
Personal injury claims must, in most cases, be made within 3 years of the date you were injured or learned of your injury.
To win a personal injury case, your lawyer must prove that the Defendant owed you a duty of care, that the Defendant breached that duty, and that your injury or illness was caused by that breach.
