If you have sustained an injury in an accident in Newcastle Emlyn, you could be entitled to compensation. While you may feel worried about the prospect of starting a claim, an accident lawyer can help you to claim the financial support you deserve.

Buried under a mountain of paperwork? An accident lawyer could help!

If you believe you have a valid claim for compensation, you will either have to get to grips with complex legal terminology or ask an accident lawyer to deal with your claim on your behalf. All personal injury claims are associated with strict time limits. Referred to as the limitation period, the standard period for commencing legal proceedings is usually three years from the date on which your accident occurred. If you struggle to file your compensation claim in full and on time, you may lose your right to compensation.

The three-year time period applies to the vast majority of personal injury claims. If you were injured through the carelessness of another person whilst you were under the age of 18, the three-year limitation period will not start until the date on which you turn 18 years of age. This means that you must commence legal proceedings before you celebrate your 21st birthday. If you were suffering from a mental disability and were receiving treatment under the Mental Health Act at the time of your accident or injury, the three-year period will not commence until the date on which you were discharged as a patient.

Confused by the rules? Contact an accident lawyer

The rules surrounding the limitation periods and their exceptions are extremely complicated. If you believe you may be entitled to claim compensation, you should seek the advice of an accident lawyer as soon as possible. If you fail to commence legal proceedings within the three-year time frame, your claim will become time-barred, which means that you will lose your right to receive compensation. In very exceptional circumstances, the court may agree to override the standard three-year limitation period. However, this is entirely at their discretion.
