Limitation Period

What is a limitation period?

A limitation period is a time limit for taking legal action that is governed by a statute of limitations. In personal injury law, there is a limitation period for making a statement of claim, after which time a claim cannot be made. These deadlines require you to:

  • report an accident to your insurance company (or to the insurer of the vehicle in the accident) within 7 days of the accident;
  • complete and submit your accident benefits application within 30 days of the accident;
  • contact the at-fault driver that you intend to sue within 120 days of the accident; and,
  • file a lawsuit against the at-fault driver within 2 years of the accident.

These strict deadlines make it even more urgent for victims to contact an experienced personal injury lawyer without delay.
