Yes. Generally speaking, there is a 3 year time limit which runs from the date your accident occurred.
If your injury came on over a period of time, there are special rules that apply to determining when the 3 year time limit starts running.
The exceptions to the 3 year time limit are very rare. If a ‘material fact’ of a ‘decisive character’ does not come into your knowledge about the case until after the 3 year time limit expires, in certain cases you can still bring a claim provided the Court’s permission is obtained within certain time limits. These cases need to be looked at very closely and if you find yourself in this position, we recommend that you act without delay and seek legal advice.
