Accident in Plymouth


Being involved in an accident can be extremely traumatic, leaving not just physical injuries but emotional and psychological injuries too. If you have had an accident in Plymouth, you may also be facing the prospect of financial insecurity due to your accident. For example, you may have been left unable to work, you may be facing expensive medical costs or you may be racking up debts because you simply do not have enough money to pay your bills.

This is simply not fair. Some would say that life never is fair, but there is a silver lining – you are legally entitled to claim for compensation if you have been injured in accident in Plymouth that wasn’t your fault. So if your injuries have left you financially worse off, then you can do something to right this wrong.

At Accident Advice Helpline, we have helped thousands of people injured in an accident in Plymouth to do just that. Our in-house solicitors have worked on a wide variety of accident claims from complex road traffic accidents to simple slips, trips and falls with extremely high success rates.

Can I make a claim?

There is a 3-year limit for making a personal injury claim. The 3 years begins from your date of limitation, which is the date your injury became clear. You cannot make a claim after 3 years, unless you have been treated under the Mental Health Act 1983 or otherwise lack the mental capacity to make a claim yourself.

If you are under 18 or you were injured when you were a child, then you have 3 years from the date of your 18th birthday to make a claim. Or, somebody else can make a claim for you before your 18th birthday. This person is known as the litigation friend.

If you can pass the above eligibility tests, then there’s a strong chance that you can make a claim for compensation. The next step is to ascertain liability. Your lawyer will do this on your behalf, and build a strong case to maximise the chances of claim success. However, it is important to remember that the other party can contest liability for your accident in Plymouth, and this can cause the claims process to take upwards of 12 months. But, the vast majority of claims do not stretch out this far and are completed within a 12-month period.

If you are unsure about your eligibility for making a claim, call our experts on 0800 689 0500 or from your mobile on 0333 500 0993 today.
