Statute of Limitations/Time Limits in Medical Negligence

The time limits within which a case can be taken is two years from the date of the accident/ injury, but on occasions, the time limits may be shorter or longer, for example, in the case of persons with intellectual impairment or in the case of persons under the age of 18 years the time limits are extended by the legislation.  The time limit may also be extended for those who did not have knowledge of the wrongdoing or that the wrongdoing caused the injury.
