How to Make a personal injury claim
Legislation exists to support people seeking compensation for personal injuries. When you contact us for help and support with your claim, we assess your case carefully, ensuring you have the best chances of success.
There are some cases where the symptoms and difficulties you suffer today are as a result of work placed injuries that started some time ago. Hand-arm vibration, sometimes known as ‘white finger’, results after prolonged use of vibrating equipment. Taking many years to develop, you may now be suffering the agonising pain.
To make a claim, you need to do so within three years of the date of your diagnosis. To win your personal injury claim, personal injury solicitors in Middlesbrough will need to demonstrate;
- The defendant owed you duty of care
- This duty of care was broken or breached by the defendant
- This breach led to your injury or illness
Employers have a duty of care to their employees, who also have responsibilities.
When it comes to making a claim, time is of the essence. Beginning your claim sooner will ensure that your solicitor can collect all the valuable information and evidence to form a strong case.
How to choose the right no win no fee solicitors in Middlesbrough
