Why claim for personal injury compensation?

Sustaining a personal injury, whether minor or severe, can have lasting repercussions on your day-to-day quality of life and your ability to work. Making a personal injury compensation claim can help you return to as normal a life as possible following an accident, and reimburse some of the money you may have lost through loss of earnings and other expenses. 

Money won as part of your personal injury claim could be used to cover: 

  • Loss of earnings and pension funds
  • Travel expenses to and from medical appointments
  • The cost of care and rehabilitation services
  • Any home improvements or specialist medical equipment required as a result of your injury

What is the time limit for making a personal injury claim?

In England & Wales, personal injury claims must be made within three years of the date of the accident. If you do not make your claim within this period, it is likely to be rejected. 

However, there are some exceptions to this. If the injured party is aged under 18, then the three-year time limit comes into effect from their 18th birthday. Additionally, if the negative health consequences of an accident are not immediately obvious, then the limitation period will begin from the point that you became aware that something was wrong. 

If the accident happened abroad, different time limits will also apply, depending on local laws. If you feel unsure about any of the issues relating to time limits on personal injury claims, it is essential to seek expert legal advice as soon as possible to minimise the risk of missing the deadline.
