Timing your personal injury claim in Everton
If you’ve been injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault it’s probably something you’d like to erase from your memory. An unforgettable experience you’d prefer to forget.
Sometimes the shock of an accident can cause our minds to blank out some of the details. This protects us from the trauma of what’s happened, for instance when injuries may have been life changing.
The law says you can make a compensation claim up to three years after the date of your accident. If your injuries are serious your recovery will, quite rightly, be your main focus.
You may need to wait to see if any long term health problems emerge before you make your claim. We understand this.
Striking while the iron is hot
This phrase alludes to the blacksmiths forge. If the farrier were to leave the iron to cool it’s pliability would be lost.
If you’re considering a personal injury claim we’d like to encourage you to think about making it, if you are able, as soon as you can after your accident.
Witnesses and family and friends may have a clearer recall of what happened closer to the event and be able to support your claim with more accurate statements. Important things can get forgotten in the mists of time.
It’s always a good idea to write things down. Even if you don’t want to claim compensation just yet, a written record of events will be a useful memory aid. Keep track of the out of pocket expenses associated with your accident for instance.
