Let’s talk about time
The clock ticks away regardless of what we are doing, where we are doing it and who we are with. In some cases time flies by, usually when we are doing something we enjoy like visiting friends or being away on holiday. But occasionally time creeps past; we clock-watch waiting for those endless minutes to pass, and we can be released from the drudgery – we clock watch at work, or maybe in an exam.
Sometimes time plays tricks on us, which is something of which our injury solicitor in Crondall is all too aware.

Keep watching that clock!
But before we continue, you need to know an important thing about your potential compensation claim – the clock is ticking!
What do we mean by this? There are several factors that combine in a heady recipe to make a successful compensation claim, and one which often catches out the clients of our injury solicitor in Crondall is time.
Specifically, the deadline related to compensation cases. Did you know that you need to make your claim within three years of the date of the accident or incident in question?
Unfortunately, as many potential clients here at Accident Advice Helpline find out to their dismay, they have missed the all-important window of opportunity to make a claim, and that the services of our specialist injury solicitor in Crondall are out of reach.
There are some variations
In law, there are some variations to this three-year deadline, but these only apply to compensation claims for industrial diseases or where the claimant was a child under 18 years of age at the time of the accident. However, be warned that even these cases have tight terms and conditions when it comes to time.
If my claim is outside of the three-year deadline, is there anything that can be done?
The three-year deadline is an unmovable beast; it is stipulated in UK law and has been on the statute books for many years. Our injury solicitor in Crondall cannot change this.
