If you have an accident due to public liability, it is advisable to contact a personal injury solicitor as soon as possible to discuss making a claim. In England and Wales, there is a time limit of three years from the date of accident to make a claim for injury. Once this date has passed, you may not be able to claim compensation. There are some claims that have a shorter limitation. If you have suffered an injury and believe you may have a public liability claim, do not delay seeking legal advice on the same.
