“Limitation Periods” are time limits placed on medical negligence or accident claims. It means that if you want to sue someone and make a personal injury claim, you must do it within the allotted period of time.
“Potential Defendants” are the people that will be sued if they lose the case for a personal injury claim. Limitation Periods can work in their favour if the person who wants to sue them has a strong case against them but does not make a potential claim before the Limitation Period has finished. Limitation Periods also work by keeping the evidence “fresh” and not allowing too much time to elapse between the time when the injury happened and the potential claim.
In almost all cases you will have to make the personal injury claim within three years of the accident happening. However, the earlier you do it the better. Your solicitor will have to do a large amount of work regarding the case before the Court proceedings start, and several Court protocols must be followed. Additionally, you are likely to remember more details after a couple of months that you would after a couple of years. Witnesses, important documents and other evidence can disappear if you leave a couple of years between the accident and the claim.
