- You were not to blame for the accident in which you were injured;
- Someone else was responsible for it;
- You had your injuries treated by a medical practitioner as soon as was possible after your accident.
- The accident happened within the last three years.
Some accidents and the injuries resulting from them, have to be claimed for in less than three years. Check with us at Accident Advice Helpline to find out how long you have to make a claim.
When the limitation period for filing a claim is up, it is extremely difficult to file a claim, unless you can prove that there were extenuating circumstances that prevented you from doing so within the set time period.
What can be claimed for
Naturally, you can claim for the pain, distress and suffering caused you by your injuries. This type of compensation comes under the category of general damages. You can also claim for loss of amenity, or loss of quality of life if your injuries have meant that you can no longer do things that you used to enjoy before you were injured.
Then there are special damages: these are to compensate you for money you had to spend only because of your injuries. In other words, you can claim for medical care, prescription charges and so on as long as you have kept the receipts.
