Everything you need to know about the time limits for Flyde no win no fee claims
Did you know that only around 30 per cent of personal injury suffers actually make a claim? It’s a shocking statistic. Nonetheless, one of the main reasons why so many people fail to get compensation is because they are unaware of the fact that there are time limits in regards to making a no win no fee claim.
Individuals simply assume that they have all the time in the world to make their claim. Thus, they focus on getting better first, and when they have time they then explore the possibility of getting compensation. It’s an understandable approach to take, yet it is sadly one that could result in you getting no compensation whatsoever.
What is the time limit for making a claim?
So, what is the time limit for making your Flyde no win no fee claims? It is three years. In other words you have three years from the date of the incident to make your claim. It is imperative to note that court proceedings must be issued within this period.
