If you need to make a compensation claim in Southampton, it will be because you have been injured in an accident that was not your own fault. That could have been a road traffic accident, an accident at work, a slip, trip or fall accident, or one of many other types of accidents.
As long as someone else was to blame, your injuries were serious enough for you to need medical attention and the accident happened within the last three years, British law says you can make a compensation claim against the guilty party. There are a few exceptions to the time limit rule, the main two being.
- If you were younger than 18 at the time of the accident, and no one made a claim for you when it happened, you have three years from your 18th birthday to start your claim.
- If you are claiming for an industrial illness these can take several years to show themselves. In this situation, you have three years from when you are diagnosed to start your claim.
