Do you need a personal injury lawyer?
Although a road accident claim may be settled out of court, there is always the possibility that the claim will be disputed. It may be best to consult a personal injury lawyer who specialises in claims arising from road traffic accidents before making your claim.
If you call us at Accident Advice Helpline, we will be able to put you in touch with a suitable lawyer and you can discuss your potential road traffic accident claim with him or her. At the end of the discussion the lawyer will be able to tell you whether you have a claim to make or not. There is no obligation to hire the lawyer to work for you, although he or she will work on a no win, no fee* basis.
How long do I have to file my claim?
Generally speaking you have three years from the date of an accident that happened in the British Isles to file a claim for personal injury, but there are always exceptions to general rules. You may have much less time in which to file your particular claim. To find out exactly how long you have to file your potential road traffic accident claim, call us at Accident Advice Helpline.
When the deadline for filing a claim has passed, you can only file it if there were exceptional circumstances which prevented you from doing so within the time period given. For example, if you were in a coma for more than three years, then this would be an exceptional circumstance and you could file your claim.
