There is a Time Limit
A lot of people do not realise it but there is actually a time limit when it comes to making a personal injury claim. In almost all cases this limit is three-years.

However, this very rarely applies to a whiplash injury in Knettishall, thus you can assume that you have three years to make your claim.
