If you have suffered an injury that was not your fault you are likely to be feeling a little bit all over the place – shocked, distressed and upset. It is wise to think about making a personal injury compensation claim. After all, if you have sustained an injury through no fault of your own, you will be entitled to compensation. Nonetheless, this is something a lot of people do not want to do straight away. They want to deal with the injury first and then worry about the legal stuff afterwards. This is understandable. However, it is imperative to factor in the time limits on Angus no-win, no-fee claims.
Crucial advice you need to know regarding time limits for Angus no-win, no-fee claims
A lot of people do not actually realise there are time limits on Angus no-win, no-fee claims. They think they have all the time in the world. Nonetheless, this is certainly not the case! If you have been the victim of an accident that was caused by someone else’s error or negligence, you have three years to make a claim. It is pivotal to note that court proceedings must be issued within this three year period. Thus, if you were involved in a car crash on 15th July 2013 you will have until the 15th July 2016 for court proceedings to be issued.
Are there any exceptions? There can be, but these are few and far between. Generally the only occasions whereby there are exceptions to the time limits on Angus no-win, no-fee claims is when you cannot pinpoint one exact date for the accident. This is relevant to injuries that occur over a period of time, such as those sustained in the workplace. For repetitive strain injury and vibration white finger, for example, you will likely have three years from the date of your diagnosis instead.
