When Should I Make A Claim?
Under normal circumstances in the UK & Northern Ireland, you need to make a claim within 3 years from the date of the negligence or from the date of your knowledge of the negligence. In Republic of Ireland, you need to make a claim within 2 years. However, if you’re claiming compensation on behalf of a child, then there is no time limit until your child turns 18. From the age of 18 the three-year rule applies in UK and NI, and the two-year rule in ROI.
If you have concerns or believe that you were a victim of negligence, it’s important to seek expert legal advice as soon as possible. Don’t delay in getting this support, as it never hurts to discuss the situation with a trained expert and to at least find out if you could have a claim.
