3 years to bring a claim? What the Telly ad’s dont tell you..

Yes, generally you do have 3 years (called the limitation period) from the date of the accident or injury in which to bring a claim (meaning that you must either settle your claim or issue proceedings in the Courts within 3 years) but there are exceptions to the 3 year rule.
