Absolutely – in fact there are quite a few. Which is why it is so important to get legal advice at an early stage.
A procedural time limit you should be made aware of is the obligation to serve a notice of claim form on the person a t fault within 9 months of the accident or within one month from the date you consult a lawyer (whichever is earlier). If this time limit is missed, you may be still able to make a claim however you will need to provide an excuse for the delay caused.
A more significant time limit is three years from the date of the accident – if you haven’t filed legal proceedings in the court by that date you will lose any entitlement to make a claim. To be able to do that you first ned to navigate your claim through the many hurdles involved in the pre-court processes. So it’s important to act fast to protect your interests.
