To make a successful claim for compensation, you need to establish three key factors:

  • Duty of care
  • Negligence
  • Injury

To succeed in a personal injury claim, you must prove the party responsible for your accident, whether a business or a local authority, owed you a duty of care to keep you safe whilst you were on their property.

You must prove they have been negligent in fulfilling this duty and their negligence was why you had the accident.

Finally, to have reasonable prospects of claiming, you must have sustained an injury in, or as a result of, the accident.
