Time limits for ‘no win, no fee’ claims in Halton involving workplace accidents
Have you sustained an injury in the workplace? Perhaps you have recently been diagnosed with vibration white finger and believe your employer did not do enough to prevent it from happening? Maybe you were the victim of a construction accident?
Or, have you sustained an injury that has occurred because of poor health and safety in the working environment? There is a whole host of ways injuries can happen in the workplace. Nonetheless, if your employer is at fault for the injury you have suffered, you will be entitled to claim. Yet, there is one thing you need to be aware of, and this is the time limits on ‘no win, no fee’ claims in Halton. So, keep on reading to find out all you need to know…
The time limit on all personal injury cases is three years. This means you have three years from the date of the incident to ensure court proceedings are issued. Nonetheless, it is not always this simple with workplace accidents. Let’s say you were the victim of a construction accident.
Your time limit would be easy to work out. The construction accident happened on the 3rd of July 2013 and thus you have until the same date of 2016. However, things become a little bit more complex when it comes to the likes of industrial diseases, vibration white finger and repetitive strain injury. Why? Well these are injuries that tend to occur over time, as opposed to happen because of one specific accident. So, what happens then? Well, there will be a bit more leeway and generally you can expect to have three years from your date of diagnosis instead.
