If you have been injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault then you could be owed personal injury compensation as a result. This is true as the law states that if you are injured in an accident or fall ill and somebody else was to blame then you are entitled to seek compensation for the physical, psychological and financial implications of your ailment. With this in mind, this article will discuss and answer the vital questions which anyone who was injured in an accident will need to know the answers to, in order to successfully pursue a claim. These questions will include how long do I have to claim, who can help me to claim, how can I contact them and what will they do for me.
How long do i have to claim after being injured in an accident?
For the majority of personal injury compensation claims there is a period of three years from the incident in question in which you can begin claims proceedings and if more time than this passes then you can no longer make a claim. There are two notable exceptions to this rule and these are claims which deal with an injury to a minor and claims which concern industrial diseases such as asbestos poisoning. This second type of claim is exempt from the time limit because of the fact that symptoms of these types of conditions can take a number of years to manifest themselves. You will have three years from the date of your diagnosis to claim.
