Children get injured every day
Children get injured every day. It’s a pretty common experience and all part of the normal growing up process. Accidents are bound to happen, and 9 times out of 10, the accidents are not anybody’s fault. But when they are; if for example a school has been negligent in some way, then the parents of the injured child will be well within their rights to sue the school for damages by way of compensation.
The three-year statute of limitations
With most cases of personal injury there is a three-year statute of limitations. Basically this means that injured parties have three years from the date of their injury (or illness, if we’re talking about an occupational related illness or disease) during which they can raise their claim. Once this window has expired, the opportunity expires with it. There are some exceptions for example, if we’re talking about an illness or disease that has a long incubation period.
It’s easier when things are current
Another exception is the case in point – an injury claim for a child. In this instance the three-year “clock” doesn’t start counting down until the child’s 18th birthday. It doesn’t mean you have to wait to instigate the claim though. The sooner the better is the general rule of thumb. It’s much easier to use witnesses and get medical proof etc. when the incident is a recent one.
