In the UK, the standard time limit within which any form of personal injury claim can be filed is 3 years. If legal proceedings are not started within 3 years, the case is considered time barred and you are no longer entitled to claim for compensation. The 3-year deadline starts either from the date that the accident happened or from the date when it was established that your injury was directly/indirectly linked to the original injury, which is also known as ‘date of knowledge’. In fatal cases, the family of the deceased has 3 years to make a claim, starting from the date either your loved one died, or the date you received the post-mortem reports, connecting the death to the injury.

The golden advice is always to start thinking about making a personal injury compensation claims as soon as after the actual incident takes place. Events will still be fresh in your mind, evidences are easier to collect and a stronger compensation case more likely to be built.
