    Time limits when using accident lawyers in Harrogate

    If you have been injured in an incident that was not your fault, you will likely be feeling stressed, upset and shocked. It is understandable that you may want to focus on your recovery before you begin the process of making your compensation claim with accident lawyers in Harrogate. Nonetheless, it is important to get the money you deserve. If someone else has caused your suffering then you will be entitled to compensation. You also need to be mindful that there is a time limit on all personal injury cases.

    This time limit is three years. This means that you have three years from the date of the incident to make a claim and court proceedings must be issued within this period. For instance, if you were involved in a construction accident on May 12th 2013 you will have until May 12th 2016 to make a claim.

    These time limits are usually strict and it’s unlikely that you will be able to find a way around them. The only exceptions tend to occur when the incident has occurred over time, such as hearing loss. In such instances it is often impossible to pinpoint and accident date and thus you will have three years from the date of your diagnosis instead.

    No one wants to lose out on the money they are entitled to simply because they left it too late. If you have been injured, get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline today to talk about accident lawyers in Harrogate. All of our accident lawyers work on a no win no fee basis.
