Frequently Asked Questions

Common causes of road traffic accidents?

  • Blind spots
  • Unsafe vehicles
  • Unsafe driving practices – speeding, disobeying the rules of the road
  • Merging traffic
  • Texting while driving

Statute of Limitation

What are the legal time limits?

The legal time limits on how long you have to make a claim are called The Statutes of Limitation. It varies depending on the situation.

Generally, for most personal injury cases, the person who has sustained the injury has two years from the date of the accident or date of knowledge of the accident to pursue a compensation claim. You may contact a solicitor to discuss your case to help you discover how long you have left to make a claim.
