Criteria for Making an Injury Claim
First of all, and most importantly, you must be able to prove that the accident in which you were injured was not your fault. Secondly you must be able to prove, with the help of a personal injury lawyer, that the accident was caused by another person (as you must have someone to make a claim against).
In order to make a claim, you must have had medical treatment as soon as you possibly could have done after the accident, as a medical report is required.
How Long do I Have to Make a Claim?
If the accident in which you were injured took place in the UK, you usually have three years from its date to file a personal injury compensation claim. However, as there are some accidents and injuries, which carry a limitation period of months rather than years, call us at Accident Advice Helpline on one of our freephone numbers to find out how long you have to file your particular claim.
Accidents with 2 Years to Claim
If you are injured in an accident at sea, in the air or at almost any airport in the world (the country must have signed the Montreal Convention), you only have two years in which to claim for your injuries. You also only have two years to claim through the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority if you were injured while a crime was being committed.
