In the case of an accident causing the injury, you have three years to make your claim, unless the accident happened on a plane or ship when you only have two years. Because industrial illnesses can take many years to develop, you have three years from the diagnosis to make your claim. If you were a minor at the time of the incident, and no one made a claim for you, you need to make the claim as soon after your 18th birthday as you can, and then your claim may still be considered.
In the case of criminal injury you have two years from the date of the incident, although there can be special circumstances where this period is extended at the discretion of the Criminal Injury Compensation Authority.
