How long will it take to claim for personal injury?

The time to reach a settlement offer may vary from case to case. As the severity and damages incurred also differ from person to person. The total time invested in claiming for a personal injury is based on the complexity of the situation and gathering medical evidence. 

Another important aspect of claim duration is whether you know the identity of the opposition side. Sometimes, the other party does not admit the liability and challenges your case in court. For instance, a road accident claim may be resolved in just a few weeks. While a claim for medical negligence may extend for up to three years or additional time. 

For ease and better understanding, an uninsured driver claim takes around three- or four-months duration. Whereas other road and work accidents can take somewhere between four to nine months. The time duration may vary based on the nature and complexity of the claim. 

Is there any limit on making a personal injury claim?

Yes, there is a time limit to make a personal injury claim. The personal injury claim limit is three years, beginning from the date of the accident. Your lawyer may need to complete a formal procedure to register for the compensation claim. However, there are exceptions for the three-year personal injury time limit. These include: 

  • Psychological trauma: 

If the petitioner has experienced a brain injury that has seriously damaged their function.

  • Children: 

A guardian can initiate an injury claim, representing the child before the age of 18 years old. However, in case of no claim, the child after becoming legally adult has three years to file a claim until 21st birthday.

If the injury claim succeeds, the cost of rehabilitation will be compensated under 'special damages'. Any cost of ongoing treatment will also be ensured to be paid by the other side. 

How to make a successful personal injury claim?

It is quite obvious that compelling evidence establishes strong grounds for your claim. If all the evidence is in your favor to support the fact that the injury is merely caused due to negligence of another party., this will also speed up the time to receive the compensation as soon as possible.

It is always advised to be completely honest with your lawyer. Sometimes, people add up an extra layer of false information, just to make their case more feasible. But, if such a situation is found, the claimant can be held up for accountability.

Mostly lawyers withdraw cases in such a situation and charge you for the invested time and effort. Also, the claimant can be charged with contempt of court proceedings in such a scenario.

How does our solicitor prove a claim for personal injury?

Our doors are always open for you, come at any time and have a cup of tea with us!

  • I’ve been dealing with Rosie for a few months now, after withdrawing from a property we continued to use her for the purchase of our new one. Rosie’s changed my perception of solicitors as she always acted in my best interests, always responds very promptly to any questions (regardless of how silly). I will certainly be recommending Rosie to friends and family. I’m sure we will have dealings in the future. Value for money is seconded to none. 
    Thanks again
