Knowing that there are no injury claim solicitors in Flitwick, most local residents go online and seek out the services of someone like us here at Accident Advice Helpline if they’ve suffered an injury for which they want to try and claim compensation.
Exercising your right to claim compensation
Too many people don’t exercise their right to claim compensation. According to industry statistics, only three out of ten people ever bother, yet the law states that if you’ve been injured, and someone else is to blame, you should be compensated. You never know, you could be owed a significant amount of money. Seek advice from solicitors in Flitwick at Accident Advice Helpline to claim the compensation you deserve.
The three-year statute of limitation
The first thing to bear in mind if you’re having second thoughts about claiming compensation for an injury you sustained in the past is that it must have been sustained within the past three years. That’s because of the current statute of limitations, which for most injuries scenarios is set at three years. Two notable exceptions are criminal injuries and injuries to a child (a person under the age of 18).
Exceptions to the three-year window
In terms of criminal injury, the statute of limitations is reduced from three years down to two. In the case of injuries to people under the age of 18, the three-year statute of limitations doesn’t start counting down until the victim reaches their 18th birthday. Whatever the statute of limitations is with regard to the injury you’ve suffered, if you don’t claim within that period, once the window has closed you’ve lost your right.
