You have a right to make a claim

You have time to make a claim
For many people, the weeks and months immediately following an accident can be filled with many things to take care of. Sorting out insurance, procuring alternative transport arrangements, taking care of kids and managing time off work all whilst trying to make a recovery can take it’s toll. The good news is you have up to three years from the date of the accident in which to make a claim.
Your injuries need to be documented
If you want to seek compensation for an injury, you need to prove that your accident did in fact cause your injuries, and this means having your injuries treated and confirmed by a medical professional. Whether you receive treatment on the scene, at the hospital immediately after the accident or even at your local GP in the following weeks, it’s important to have proof if you’d like to make a claim.
