When Should I Claim?

You generally have 3 years within which to bring any claim to court but the sooner you speak to us and get legal advice the better.

Memories fade quickly after accidents and it is important to take a comprehensive statement, in appropriate cases, at the earliest possible stage and also to take witness statements.The basic rule is that if a claim does not settle it must be taken to court within 3 years of the date of the accident, or, if later, from the date when you realised you had suffered significant harm or should have realised that you could start a claim.

There are different rules for children and people who cannot look after their own affairs. If a child has an accident, the 3 year limitation period does not start running until the child reaches adulthood at 18. If a person cannot look after their own affairs it may be that the limitation period will not run at all in their case, due to their disability.
