The time limit everyone who suffers a whiplash injury in Fleetwood needs to know about
Did you know that there is a time limit on all personal injury claims? If you have sustained a whiplash injury in Fleetwood, you need to act fast! This is something of which a lot of people are unaware, and unfortunately many find out when it is too late. They miss out on compensation to which they would have been entitled, and sadly there is nothing they can do about it. To ensure you do not end up in this awful predicament, read on to discover all you need to know about the time limit on all cases for individuals who suffer a whiplash injury in Fleetwood.
Generally, there is a three-year time limit on all personal injury cases, although there are indeed exceptions. For example, there are some personal injuries that develop over time, such as repetitive strain injury (RSI). Moreover, some injuries do not show themselves until a while after the accident. However, these exceptions very rarely occur in relation to whiplash injuries. Therefore, if you have suffered from whiplash you can pretty much guarantee that your time limit in which to make a claim is three years.
So, what does this actually mean? It means that court proceedings must be issued prior to the deadline date. So, if you suffered a road traffic accident on the 5th October 2012, you do not have until the upcoming October to merely decide you are going to explore your options — you will have to have had court proceedings issued by then. So, there would be no time to waste! Furthermore, most people will agree that the sooner you make your claim, the better. After all, you don’t want to forget details, and if you leave it too long you could struggle to get in touch with pivotal witnesses, and such like.
