There are criteria you need to fit to be able to make a personal injury claim. If you fit these criteria then you’re in a position to seek the help of our injury solicitors in Salisbury, or anywhere else in the UK. The criteria are:
- Someone else must have been at fault for the accident
- You must have sustained injuries in the accident
- Your injuries must have needed medical attention
- The accident must have happened with the last three years
These rules are set in stone for most accidents, but there are a few situations where the time limit can vary.
The variations to time scales
The time limits have some variations for specific situations, such as:
- Accidents in the air or at sea have a two-year time limit
- For industrial illnesses you have three years from the date of diagnosis
- Where minors are concerned, the victim has 3 or 2 years from their 18th birthday, depending on the time limit for the incident
These differences often come into play when innocent victims want to make a personal injury claim and if you are unsure about your situation, give the friendly advisors at Accident Advice Helpline a call on freephone number 0800 689 0500, or 0333 500 0993 from a mobile.
