If you have suffered an industrial disease or illness you may be thinking about making a compensation claim in Ryde.
In the case of most personal injury claims there is a time limit in which you ideally need to initiate your claim – this is usually three years; however, in the cases of industrial diseases and illnesses which often take a long time to present themselves, this time line can be extended. Consequently you usually have three years in which to start your compensation claim in Ryde from the date you were aware of your diagnosis.
