If you have suffered injuries due to an accident at work that was not your fault, there can be multiple reasons as to why you may be unable to make a claim for compensation right away.
Whether you have been focused on recovering from your injuries or you were unaware that you could make a claim, months and even years can pass before you look to pursue a claim.
The dedicated solicitors at Your Accident at Work Claims speak to many people who are concerned that they have run out of time to bring their claim, so in this article we talk you through the time limits in place for securing accident at work compensation.
If you have a potential accident at work claim that you would like to discuss with one of our experienced legal advisors, then give our team a call on today 0800 01 54321.
How long you will have to make an accident at work claim
In the UK, a claim for personal injury arising from an accident at work must be started within 3 years.
If legal proceedings have not started within this period, then the claim may become statute-barred, which ultimately means that the claim can no longer be made.
Crucially, the 3-year deadline starts from the date that the accident happened or from the date of which you had knowledge of the injury having been caused by a workplace accident.
The latter part, in particular, is relevant to those who may have been exposed to asbestos and have subsequently been diagnosed with asbestos-related illness many years after exposure.
