Are there Time Limits on Making a Personal Injury Claim in Scotland?

The golden rule in claims of any nature is to get started as soon as possible. At Jones Whyte, we understand that the emotional and physical fallout of a personal injury can be overwhelming and you will take time to recover, and perhaps come to terms with your injuries. However, time is always of the essence.

Broadly, the time limit for bringing a personal injury claim is three years from the date on which the accident occurred or you became aware of your injury. There are certain instances where a claim will be valid after three years, however these are limited. In most cases, the three-year time limit applies and so you should seek specialist legal advice for your claim without delay.

The important thing to note is that time runs from the date of knowledge of an injury. That means that if you recently discovered that you are suffering from an industrial disease, such as mesothelioma, but the likelihood is that you sustained it decades ago – you can still claim. What is important is your date you first became aware of your injury.
