    How long do you have to start your compensation claim?

    The common rule in compensation claim cases is that court events have to be commenced within three years of the date of the accident happening. There are some exclusions to this rule, for example if you are on a ship, plane or balloon when you are injured, court events should be started within two years of the accident happening. If you take longer than this to start your claim you are likely to be disallowed from pursuing compensation.
