Rowlands Castle is a village in East Hampshire near the border with West Sussex. It is one of those traditional villages with a village green, and the ruins of a motte and bailey castle, which was abandoned to its fate at some time in the 15th century. The Romans made use of the local clay, to make bricks, tiles and pottery.

How long do I have to make a claim?
If your accident occurred in the UK, you would usually have three years in which to make a claim. However, there are some accidents, such as accidents which happen at sea, in the air or at an airport (if the country is a signatory of the Montreal Convention) for which you only have two years in which to claim for injuries.
You also only have two years to claim for injuries which occurred while a crime was being committed. You can claim for these through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority or the Northern Ireland Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme, depending on where the crime happened. Although in theory you do not need a solicitor to represent you in order to make a claim for these injuries, you would be advised to hire the services of an experienced criminal injuries solicitor as the claims’ process can be lengthy and complex.
You have three years in which to file a claim for an illness caused by another person’s negligence.
However there are other accidents and injuries for which you may have less time in which to make a claim, so you should check with a firm of injury solicitors, or with us at Accident Advice Helpline, to find out how long you actually have to file your claim.
