Time limits on making a claim

There are strict time limits that apply to when you need to commence court proceedings by in medical negligence claims.

The usual time limit is three years from the date you were injured or the date you first should have known that your injury was the result of medical negligence. 

Special rules regarding time limits apply to children. Time does not begin to run against a child until they turn 18 so they have until their 21st birthday to start court proceedings.

There are also special rules for people who cannot manage their own affairs.
