What is Personal Injury?
Personal Injury is a term that means you have suffered a physical or psychological injury or illness as a result of someone else’s negligence or mistake. A personal injury can severely affect an individual, their family, and may also, in very serious circumstances, result in death.
There are many causes of personal injuries, and they can happen at any time. Having an accident at work, in your car, as a result of faulty goods or services, as a result of abuse or by errors occurring in hospital treatments or vaccinations are all valid reasons for potentially making a claim for compensation.
Even if the injury you have suffered does not lead to a claim for compensation, by talking to the solicitors at Pryers, we can help direct you to the best course of action, referring you to government bodies, support and counselling services or your nearest Citizens Advice Bureau for help and assistance.
Time limits for making a personal injury claim
If you want to take legal action and claim compensation as a result of a personal injury you must talk to a solicitor that specialises in this area of law. This must be done as soon as possible as there are strict time limits on making certain types of claim.
In general, most personal injury claims are brought under the law of negligence and the time limit allowed for such a matter is 3 years. This means that the court proceedings must be issued within 3 years of the injury occurring (usually the date of any incident) or you first being aware that you suffered an injury. This can, in some cases, be extended, but it is always best to speak to the team at Pryers to get the best advice possible from the outset. Please be aware that in medical negligence cases your awareness or knowledge of an injury being sustained may well be a key factor in determining when the 3 year time frame actually commences.
It is important that you seek specialist advice on this crucial procedural point.
