    Personal injury claims time limits


    Any sort of personal injury that we suffer in an incident that was not our fault is distressing and upsetting. At first, we are completely focused on trying to make a recovery and put the whole upsetting event behind us. At this time, the last thing we may feel like doing is going through the hassle of making a personal injury claim for compensation.

    However, as time goes on we often count the cost of the injury. Maybe we can no longer work or cannot work as many hours as we used to. May be we have to buy in extra help. That’s when we start to think that we actually need to make a personal injury claim but is it too late? Should we have made a claim the same day as the accident?

    Information on personal injury claims time limits

    Claims for road traffic accidents; slips trips and falls and medical negligence can be made up to three years after the incident. Claims for industrial diseases can be made later.

    The exact amount of compensation that any one person will get cannot be guaranteed because each claim is unique. It will be useful if you can keep a record of any financial loss that you have incurred as a result of the accident. The time taken for each claim to be resolved varies because every case is so different.

    This is the time to turn to a claims management company that are experts in the personal injury claim process. Accident Advice Helpline have a team of friendly, professional advisers who will use a unique 30 second test to assess if you have grounds to make a claim.
