How Long After Injury Can You Make an Accident Claim?
There are time limits set out by the UK judicial authorities on accident claims. In most cases, you will need to commence a compensation claim within 3 years of the accident happening.
Because of this we always advise that you contact our Sunderland accident claims solicitors as soon as you can after the event. If you act quickly it also means that you stand a higher chance of success as witness statements will be fresh in the mind.
The three year limitation does not apply to children under the age of eighteen. It is also extended indefinitely when the accident claim involves industrial disease or illness.
For example, if you have suffered from asbestos poisoning or a long-term work-related illness it can be many years before you are diagnosed. Because of this the accident claim time limit is not set to three years, but instead is open-ended.
