If you are planning to make a personal injury claim with an experienced accident lawyer in Cheshire East, you will have three years to make the claim from the date of the accident. But first you will have to establish if you are eligible to do so.
If you have suffered an injury that was not your fault it is likely that you are feeling somewhat shaken up and strained as it is. You want to focus on getting better, which is obviously the main priority. Yet, you also need to ensure you get the compensation you are entitled to.
Nonetheless, this does not mean you can beginning putting a case together on the very last date! Court proceedings have to be issued within this time frame and thus it is imperative that you don’t waste too much time.
There are of course exceptions to this rule because in some cases it is impossible to pinpoint the date when the injury occurred. This relates to injuries that develop over time, such as repetitive strain injury or an industrial disease. If this happens to you; you will likely have three years from the date of your diagnosis instead.
