with me in person:
Child accident at school how long to claim: how long do I have to claim compensation for an injury whilst I was a child which I suffered whilst at school?
Chld accident at school how long to claim: I had an accident at school in 1993 when I was 13 - my injuries are still with me today. Can I still claim?
A: If you have an accident when you are a child:
1. How long does a child have to start a claim for compensation following an accident at school before it is too late in the eyes of the law?
You have until your 21st birthday to start a claim.
My calculations indicate in 2001 that you were time barred from making a claim.
2. Are there any exceptions when you have an accident as a child, which would give you extra time beyond your 21st birthday?
There are some very limited circumstances when the time period for starting a compensation claim can be extended - but an extension of 6 years will not happen for the type of accident you describe unless you have suffered with some for of mental incapacity which rendered you incapable as an adult of running your own affairs.
I do not think this will apply to you so, unfortunately, it would seem you cannot make a claim.
