When Can I Start the Personal Injury Claims Process?

There is a personal injury claims time limit, so it is always best to act as soon as possible after you have suffered in an accident. In personal injury claims, you must make claims within 3 years of the accident.

If a child has suffered a personal injury, then either the parent can start the personal injury claims process, or they can up to 3 years after they turn eighteen.

Once you have contacted us, we can begin to build your case with medical and circumstantial evidence from your incident. It is often best to seek legal advice as soon as possible, as the events will be clearest in your mind and there are more likely to be witnesses who can be contacted to support your claim.

The process will be two-fold and will involve first proving who is liable for your accident, before then deciding how much you are entitled to for your personal injury compensation. Liability means finding who is most responsible for your avoidable accident.

What is the Definition of a Personal Injury?

By definition, a personal injury is a legal term for an injury to the body or mind, as opposed to an injury to someone’s property. Types of personal injury claims that our experienced solicitors have dealt with include:

  • Road traffic accidents
  • Workplace injuries
  • Tripping accidents
  • Assault claims
  • Product defect accidents (product liability)

The term personal injury also incorporates medical and dental accidents, which may lead to a separate type of claim; a medical negligence claim.

How Long will the Personal Injury Claim Process Take?

It is difficult to put an exact time scale on how long your injury claim could take. However, the steps of the personal injury claim process are:

  • Firstly, it will be determined who is going to be held liable for your injury. For personal injury claims, this could either be an individual or an institution
  • Secondly, the medical evidence from your injury must also be assessed in order to determine how it has affected you and therefore how much compensation you can claim

If you require multiple medical assessments, then your overall claim time could potentially take longer.

With the assistance of our personal injury solicitors, we can ensure that the legal side of the process will be as efficient as possible.
