    Accident lawyers in Newport

    In need of accident lawyers in Newport?

    You would be shocked to discover the number of people in the UK that have missed out on the compensation they would have been entitled to with accident lawyers in Newport. There are many different reasons behind this – some people do not actually realise that they have the basis for a claim. Others fail to see a doctor, and they thus struggle to find any accident lawyers in Newport that will take on their case. Nevertheless, one of the main reasons why some people do not make a successful claim is because they leave it too late. There is nothing more disappointing or upsetting than going to make a claim online to discover that they have missed the cut-off point. Keeping that in mind, read on to discover everything you need to know about the time limits on personal injury cases.

    Time limits on making your claim

    The time limit for almost all personal injury cases is three years. This means that you have three years from the date of the accident and that court proceedings must be issued within this time frame. So, if you were involved in a workplace accident on November 21st 2016 you will have until November 21st 2019 to make a claim. The main exceptions relate to injuries that occur over time, with industrial deafness and repetitive strain injury being two prime examples. In such instances, it is impossible to pinpoint an accident date and therefore you will have three years from the date of your diagnosis instead.

    Three years may seem like a long time when it comes to making a claim, however, time flies and there is a lot that needs to get sorted within this time frame. Because of this, you should make a case as soon as you possibly can. This is sure to make the claim process a lot easier as well. After all, the details will be fresh in your mind if you claim not too far long after the incident has happened. You will also find it easier to get your hands on crucial evidence as well, such as witness statements. This is why you should call Accident Advice Helpline today if you have been involved in an accident that was not your fault and need accident lawyers in Newport.
