Personal Injury Compensation

Welcome to our guide exploring how to make a personal injury compensation claim.

We’ll also briefly look at the time limit you have to put forward your claim and whether any exceptions may apply.

Additionally, we have provided links to other useful guides for more specific personal injury claims.

What Is A Personal Injury Compensation Claim?

A personal injury claim could be made if you have sustained an injury as a result of someone breaching the duty of care they had a responsibility to uphold.

There are various situations in which someone may have owed you a duty of care, such as at work, in a public place or whilst using the road.

In many cases, someone may have had a responsibility to uphold the duty of care they owed you. For instance, your employer, the person in control of a public space or another road user.

If they failed to take reasonable steps to prevent you from sustaining harm in an accident that could have been avoided, you may be eligible to seek compensation for your injury.

As there are many different types of personal injury claims, please get in touch with our team to discuss your case in more detail.

How Long Do I Have To Claim Personal Injury Compensation?

Generally, you must put forward your claim within three years. The time period may start either from the date of the accident or the date you became aware that someone else’s failings at least contributed to your injuries.

However, please be aware there are several exceptions that may apply to your case.

Please contact our team on the number above to discuss whether you’re eligible to claim.
