Eligibility for making a personal injury claim
In order to file any personal injury compensation claim it is necessary to prove that you were not responsible for your accident. You also have to be able to demonstrate that another person was to blame for it because of their negligence or reckless behaviour.
As soon as possible after the accident you should have sought and received medical treatment for your injuries. Your medical records will prove that you did. They are also needed to assess how much compensation you are awarded for your injuries if your claim is successful.
If you were injured in a road traffic accident, you will also need a copy of the police accident report. The police investigate causes of such accidents when someone has been injured. This should prove that you were a victim of the accident.
You also need to file your claim within the limitation period. After the date has passed, if you did not file your claim, you would have to prove that exceptional circumstances had prevented you from doing so beforehand.
Normally you have three years from the date of an accident that happened in the UK to file a claim for injuries. However, this is not the case for all accidents. Sometimes you need to file a claim for your injuries in a matter of months after the accident.
If you need to know how long you have to file your potential claim, contact us now at Accident Advice Helpline. You may not have as much time to make your claim as you thought.
