I Was Injured In An Accident In Cannock – How Long Do I Have To Claim?

If you are considering making a personal injury claim following an accident in Cannock, you must ensure that you start your claim with the relevant limitation period. Per the Limitation Act 1980, you generally have three years from the date you were injured to start a claim.

The time limit can work differently under certain circumstances. These include:

  • If a child has been injured, the time limit is paused until the day of their 18th birthday. Before this date, a court-appointed litigation friend could make a claim on their behalf. If a claim has not been made by their 18th birthday, they will then have 3 years to start one.
  • If the injured party lacks the mental capacity to claim on their own, the time limit is indefinitely suspended. During this time, a litigation friend could claim on their behalf. If the injured party recovers this mental capacity, they will have 3 years to start a claim if one has not already been made.

Contact our advisors today if you have any questions about making a personal injury claim in Cannock or how a solicitor could help support your case.
