Rugby road traffic accidents, London accidents at work, Birmingham slip, trip and fall accidents and any other type of accident anywhere else in the UK all come under the same laws where personal injury claims are concerned:
- You must have been in an accident that was not your own fault
- You must have been injured in the accident
- Your injuries must have needed medical attention
- The accident must have happened with the last three years
These rules are strictly adheres to, but there are some exceptions to the three years rule.
The three year exceptions for Rugby road traffic accidents
There are just a few exceptions to the three year rule, such as:
- If you were less than 18 years old at the time of the accident, and a parent or guardian did not make a claim for you at the time, you have three years from your 18th birthday to make a claim. The same applies to criminal injuries except that you only have two years from your 18th birthday.
- If your accident took place on a plane or a ship, you only have two years to make a claim.
- If you are suffering from an industrial illness or condition, because these can take so many years to develop, you have three years from the date of diagnosis.
Courts can overrule this time limit, but it is very rare that they do, and is usually in the case of mental injuries where the mental state of the victim has improved over time.
It is better if a claim is made for a youngster at the time of the Rugby road traffic accidents, as it is much harder to prove a claim many years later. Also, it does appear that the sooner after an accident the claim is made, the more chance it has of success, and the better awards they seem to receive.
