Hart accident at work


Sustaining an injury in a Hart accident at work can turn your life upside down. It may cause you considerable pain and suffering, and keep you off work for an extended period of time. It may even affect your ability to work in the future.

Protecting your legal rights might be the last thing on your mind in the days immediately following your accident, but making sure you collect all the relevant evidence while the accident is still fresh in your mind can save you time and effort if you later decide to make a claim through Accident Advice Helpline.

Time limits to bring a Hart accident at work case

Under a legal rule known as the Limitation Act, you must make your claim for your Hart accident at work within a certain time limit or the claim will be barred from receiving compensation.

Typically, the limitation period for accident at work claims runs for three years, starting from the date of your accident. However, if you were under the age of 18 at the time of your accident, the limitation period will not begin to run until you reach the age of 18.

While the Limitation Act may declare that your Hart accident at work claim must be filed within a certain amount of time, the limitation period will not begin to run until the moment you realised (or should have realised) that you had suffered harm. However, the reason for the delay in discovering your injury must be reasonable, given your circumstances. For example, if you had been experiencing pain long after your accident but refused to seek medical treatment for a number of years, the court may bar your claim.
