When it comes to being injured as a result of an accident which was not your fault, whether the accident took place within the workplace, a public attraction or in the street; many of us do not think about making a claim for compensation.
How long do I have to make a Personal Injury Claim in the UK?
However, under the Limitations Act 1980 those wishing to make a claim for personal injury do have a time limit in which the claim needs to be made; and as personal injury specialists, we recommend starting the claim process at the earliest opportunity.
Under the Limitation Act 1980, those aged eighteen and over, who wish to make a personal injury claim are required to do so within three years of the injury being sustained, or within three years of first knowing about the injury.
For those aged under the age of 18, have until their twenty-first birthday to make a claim under the Limitation Act 1980; as the act is not effective until the claimant turns 18.
Whatever the injury sustained; and however it occurred, if you feel that you have a claim to make, our team of personal injury specialists can help you.Our experienced solicitors always put the needs of our clients first, ensuring that we guide you through the legal process, keeping you informed throughout each stage – without using legal jargon.
