If you are successful in your injury claim you claim claim compensation for any pain or suffering caused by the accident. You can also claim for other losses you may have incurred as a result of your accident such as:

  • the cost of medical treatment or medication
  • damage to clothing
  • loss of earnings
  • travel expenses to and from your GP or Hospital for treatment
  • care and assistance someone has had to give you because of your injuries

If you have suffered any financial losses as a result of your accident you should keep a record of them. You should also keep any receipts for those losses

Time Limits

You normally only have 3 years from the date of your accident to issue Court Proceedings. If you do not issue Court Proceedings within 3 years of the date of the accident you would usually be unable to pursue your claim further. The Courts can however waive the 3-year time limit in some circumstances if it can be shown that there was a valid reason why you did not pursue the claim sooner.
