Are There Time Limits To Making A Claim?
If you have been injured in an accident, you should bring your claim as soon as you can. The law recognises that it might not always be possible to bring a claim right away – very often we have to concentrate on getting back to full fitness.
Personal Injury Time Limits
In general, there is a three year time limit on personal injury claims. This is known as the “triennium”. You have three years from the date of the injury to begin (not conclude) your claim.
The three year time limit also applies in a slightly different way to children. The three year limit begins on their 21st birthday.
For these reasons, it is important to seek legal advice as soon as possible. If you miss the deadline by even one day, you lose your right to claim. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident contact us without delay.
