Who can make a claim?
Anyone who has sustained a serious injury that was not their fault should speak to our specialist personal injury solicitors to find out if they have a valid claim.
What Are The Time Limits For Making A Serious Injury Claim?
We would advise starting a claim within three years of the date that the injury occurred. However, there are some exceptions, such as children or where a person lacks the mental capacity to make a claim themselves. Exceptions shouldn’t be relied on, which is why it is essential to get legal advice to see if you have a claim. We would advise all clients to get in touch as soon as possible after your injury. Here’s why:
- Ensure your claim is started within the relevant legal time period.
- It’s easier to gather evidence in support of your claim.
- We can start helping you get the rehabilitation and support you need to be back on track.
