If you are unsure about whether you have a legitimate compensation claim then please call us today and we will be happy to discuss the details of your case and advise you as to whether you can claim damages for your injury. In general as long as your injury occurred within the personal injury claim time limit of the last 3 years and there is another individual or organisation who was to blame for your pain and suffering, then you should be eligible to make a claim. If you have recently developed an illness such as mesothelioma which was caused by an event that happened in the past, you are still eligible to claim as long as your diagnosis has been made within the personal injury claim time limit.
Although you will usually have three years to make your claim, we strongly suggest that you seek legal representation as early as possible as it is easier to collect valuable evidence to support your claim soon after the event has occurred. In order to successfully win damages, your lawyer will need to prove that the defendant owed you a duty of care and then breached that duty of care. There also needs to be a causal link between that breach of duty and your injury or illness. Don’t worry if this sounds complicated, our panel of accident solicitors are here to help and explain the process to you in more detail.
