General Questions

  • To make a successful personal injury claim, it must be shown that someone else was at least partly at fault. We work with some of the UK's leading personal injury claims specialists who understand your need for the process to be as simple ans straight forward as possible. Our friendly service is completely free and has been designed to do most of the work for you.

In the UK most claims for personal injury compensation following an accident are subject to a 3 year limitation period. This generally means that court proceedings must be started within 3 years of the date of the accident.

In some cases, where the injury or disease is not immediately apparent, the 3 year period will start to run from the date that you knew that the injury was connected to the original accident or negligent act. This is known as the ‘date of knowledge’ and is usually most relevant to claims for industrial diseases that develop over a number of years – for instance claims for diseases caused by exposure to asbestos and which may not develop until years after the original exposure.

In most cases involving an accident it will be apparent that some kind of injury has been sustained and the three year period starts to run immediately, even if you later discover that the injury was more serious than you first thought.

If court proceedings are not started within the 3 year limitation period your claim will become ‘statute-barred’. If you start court proceedings after the end of the 3 year period you will generally need the permission of the court to continue with your claim. However, court permission is granted subject to very strict criteria and is not guaranteed. It is therefore extremely important to ensure that court proceedings are commenced within the 3 year period.

Patients Query

Individuals with a qualifying medical condition and a recommendation for medical marijuana from an attending physician may apply for a medical marijuana card.

Visit our New Patients page to learn how to apply for a medical marijuana card.

If, upon an initial review, it appears that a complete application has been received, the patient will be issued a receipt letter. This receipt has the same legal effect as a registry identification card for 30 days following the date printed on the letter. Once your application is finished being processed, a card will be mailed to you.

If your application is NOT complete, OMMP staff will send you an "Incomplete Letter" to let you know what needs to be submitted to complete your application. You will have 14 days from the date of the letter to get the missing application materials to OMMP. If the missing application materials are not submitted within the 14 days, your application may be rejected.

The insurance industry persuaded the Government that successful Claimants should have to pay their own success fees when instructing solicitors on a no win no fee basis, capped at 25% of damages. We on the Claimant side lobbied hard against these proposals, believing that the losing insurers should continue to pay the success fee themselves, but the Government ignored our arguments and the applicable change to the law came into effect from April 1st 2013. What this means in practical terms is that, as your success fee and unrecovered base costs will almost always exceed 25% of damages, then this is the amount that will have to be deducted from recovered damages to go towards your legal fees at the successful conclusion of your case.
