In general, you have three years from the date of the accident to claim compensation. However, there are exceptions to this rule.

For example, if the injured party is a child, the three-year time limit starts from their 18th birthday. Similarly, if the accident resulted in a loss of mental capacity, there may be no time limit for making a claim.

In our Guide to Limitation in Personal Injury Claims, you can learn more about the time limits of bringing a personal injury claim.
