Is There a Deadline For Claiming on a Cycle Accident?
Typically, you need to claim within the first three years since the accident. This is the same if you are claiming on behalf of a deceased loved-one. However, if you are claiming on behalf of a child, you have up until the date of their 18th birthday, before the three-year time period kicks in. Whereas, if you are claiming on behalf of someone who does not have the mental capacity to make a claim, there is no deadline to worry about.
