Solicitors in Manchester - Stuart Matthews
Stuart Matthews / Your Personal Injury Solicitor

    Are you making a claim for you or someone else?

    Are you their legal parent or guardian?

    Sorry, as you're not their legal parent or guardian we can't help you make a personal injury claim.

    We’d still like to help them though, so please ask their parent or legal guardian to contact us as soon as possible.

    We understand the different ways and how much an accident can affect their life.

    Was the accident your fault?
    Are you over the age of 18?

    Sorry, you can’t make a claim on someone else’s behalf if you're under 18.

    Because you're under 18 and legally a minor, you can't make a claim for someone else. They need what's called a litigation friend to make the claim on their behalf. A litigation friend is normally a parent, relative, guardian or other trusted adult. Please ask them to contact us as soon as possible.

    If there isn't anyone they can turn to, the law says we're unable to investigate the claim until they're over 18. Then they'll have three years until their 21st birthday as a legal adult to make it.

    We understand the different ways and how much an accident can affect their life.

    Claim time limits - important, please read me

    If you’d like to pursue a claim at a later date, you’ll need to issue Court proceedings within the given time limits.

    • If you don’t issue the claim within those time limits, you won’t usually be able to proceed.
    • This is called being ‘time-barred’. Extensions to the time limits are only available in exceptional circumstances.
    The limitations:

    In most circumstances for adults who were 18 years old or over at the time, it’s essential that proceedings are issued within three years of the accident or incident date.

    • However, there are some important exceptions to this rule. In cases where the injured person was under 18 years old when the accident or incident occurred, the three-year period usually expires on their 21st birthday.
    • In some cases, the time limits are shorter. Examples here include: accidents abroad, on ships or claims involving criminal assault.
    • We recommend that if you still wish to pursue the claim, then you should seek the opinion of our solicitors.
