    From road traffic accidents to injuries from faulty products, there are many different reasons why people require the services of accident lawyers in Surrey. If you have been injured and the accident was not your fault, you should go ahead and make a compensation claim. However, one thing you certainly shouldn’t do is wait around. Of course you may want to focus on your recovery before you proceed with the claim process, but as soon as you are ready you should put the wheels in motion with accident lawyers in Surrey or ourselves at Accident Advice Helpline to ensure you get the money you are entitled to, and there are several reasons why.

    Time limit on personal injury cases

    There is only one place to begin to learn about personal injury claims, and this is with the fact that there is a time limit on nearly all personal injury cases. You have three years from the date of the accident and court proceedings must be issued within this period. These rules are extremely strict, and there are very few exceptions. The only exceptions tend to relate to scenarios where the injuries have developed over time, such as industrial deafness. In these cases, it is impossible to pinpoint an accident date, as people often find themselves making a claim against someone they worked for over 20 years ago. Because of this, you will have three years from the date of your diagnosis instead.

    You will also find it much easier to claim the sooner you do it. This is because the details will be fresh in your mind, and so there is less chance of you forgetting anything important. Not only this, but it will be easier for your accident lawyers in Surrey to get their hands on pivotal pieces of evidence, such as witness statements. After all, if you wait a couple of years there is every chance that your witnesses may have changed their address or telephone number, or they may not be able to remember the incident very well.

    If you have been involved in any type of accident and feel you could be entitled to compensation, get in touch with Accident Advice Helpline sooner rather than later.
