Is there a Time Limit for Personal Injury Claims?
Understanding Time Limits for Personal Injury Claims
When making a Personal Injury claim it’s important to be aware of the amount of time you have available to pursue this.
PI Claims to be Started or Settled Within 3 Years
The sooner a claim begins the better as evidence is fresh and readily available. Over time, memories have the potential to change and there’s always the possibility of changes to existing laws. The three year phase is known as the ‘limitation period’ to solicitors and this time begins from the accident date precisely.
Children & Individuals Without Capacity
Time limitations differ for children and individuals without capacity and these restraints are fixed by the law. If a personal injury claim is required for a child or person lacking capacity, it’s best to speak with our PI specialists immediately who’ll offer a more detailed overview.
