Our Mansfield team of personal injury solicitors will help you ascertain these if you have any difficulties.
How Long Do I Have To Make a Claim?
Usually, under UK law, you must begin Court proceedings within three years of the accident that has caused the injury. However, should you have not known what the cause of the injury was until some time later, then the three years can start from the date that you were first aware.
If your claim is to the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA), this needs to be made within two years of the date that the incident occurred although in some special circumstances this can change. If you require more information, our Mansfield personal injury team will be more than happy to help.
