Missed Limitation In Personal Injury Claims
Most personal injury claims have an important “limitation” deadline, in many personal injury cases that deadline is three years from the date of the accident and claims becomes “statute barred” if court proceedings aren’t started before the deadline.
If the limitation deadline is missed it is very difficult to continue with the case, so if your solicitor has missed the limitation date you may have grounds to bring a claim.
Other Missed Deadlines
There are lots of other deadlines in personal injury claims, these include deadlines for serving witness statements and serving documents.
The court can impose financial penalties when the deadlines aren’t met and in the most serious cases the court can strike out a claim all together, you may be able claim compensation if your solicitor has missed important deadlines in your case.
