Tynemouth Personal Injury Claims Time Limits
Under the Limitation Act 1980, the standard time limit for starting a personal injury claim in the UK is three years from the date of your accident. If the injuries from your accident could not be immediately confirmed, then the three year time limit will apply from the day your injuries were diagnosed. This particular day may be referred to as the ‘date of knowledge’.
There can be exceptions to how this time limit for claiming works. For instance, if you wish to claim on behalf of a child who has been injured, then the time limit for claiming doesn’t apply for that child until they reach their 18th birthday. When an injured child reaches the age of 18, they will be old enough to start a claim on their own behalf. Before then, a representative known as a litigation friend could potentially start a claim on behalf of an injured child.
Another way the time limit for claiming can change is if a victim lacks the mental capacity to act on their own behalf. When this circumstance applies to someone who is entitled to personal injury compensation, then the time limit for claiming is frozen for them. It will remain frozen unless the day comes when the victim regains enough mental capacity to start acting independently. Like with children, someone close to the victim may be able to start a claim on behalf of someone who is lacking in mental capacity by acting as a litigation friend.
What Can You Gain From A Tynemouth Personal Injury Claim?
If you are successfully able to start a personal injury claim, then there are two main types of damages which you may be able to claim through your case:
- General damages – This refers to compensation which you may receive for the injuries you suffered due to the negligent behaviour that you’re claiming for. The potential payments for general damages can vary wildly. They largely depend on what exact injuries you have suffered due to negligence and how severe these injuries are.
- Special damages – If you are successfully able to claim for general damages through a personal injury claim, then you may also be eligible to claim for special damages in addition. Compensation for special damages is designed to cover for any financial losses which can be directly linked to the negligence you experienced and the subsequent injuries. Examples of financial losses which may be covered under special damages can include travel expenses you’ve put towards receiving the necessary medical treatment for your injuries.
Tynemouth Personal Injury Claims On A No Win No Fee Basis
Our Tynemouth team of personal injury solicitors can happily assist with personal injury claims made on a No Win No Fee basis. Also known as a Confidential Fee Agreement (CFA), signing a No Win No Fee agreement to start your case can provide certain benefits:
- You will not be required to pay any fees upfront at the start of your claim.
- You also won’t be required to pay fees while your case is in the middle of being processed.
- Payment to your solicitor will only be required at the end of a successful claim. To cover their payment, your solicitor will take a small percentage of the compensation you receive. The percentage your solicitor can take is capped by law and the details of how this works should be explained in your contract agreement. You can review payment details before signing a No Win No Fee agreement.
