In some cases, it may be better to wait before submitting your application until you can see whether you have actually sustained a lasting injury or whether you have incurred a financial loss of at least NOK 10,000. This is particularly true in cases where your injury is only temporary.

Remember that you have three years to make a claim before your case becomes obsolete. You can read more about this in the article ‘What requirements must be met in order to be entitled to compensation?
