How long do I have to make a serious injury claim?
The time limit to make a Personal Injury claim after being involved in a serious accident is usually three years from the date of the accident, but this may be slightly different if:
- You’re claiming for your child who is under the age of 18; and/or
- You’re claiming for someone who doesn’t have the mental capacity to deal with their own claim
If you have sustained a serious injury from an accident, it is best to make a claim as soon as possible. It is then easier to collect all the evidence we need and can ensure you get the correct treatment straight away, enabling you to make the best possible recovery.
In some cases, serious injuries are not present straight away and in these instances, the three-year time limit would begin from the date you were made aware that the injury was the fault of someone else. An example of this is an industrial disease / accident at work claim where the onset of an illness can be years after exposure to the cause.
There are also some exceptions to the three-year limit and so it is best to contact us as soon as possible to discuss your claim.
