Hello - my name is XXXXX XXXXX it will be my pleasure to assist you today.
When you said he told the District Judge - do you mean it went to Court?
No, it was discovered in disclosure in a different case and I asked for clarification during the hearing.
Just to let you know that we only discovered it in 2009.
We have approached the Legal Ombudsman, but they say that despite the fact that since late 2009 I have been seriously ill with prostate cancer and had a nervous breakdown, I am out of date.
But it happened in 2005 - right?
Yes, but they hid it from us. It was only discovered in 2009. The firm said that the document disclosing it was released by mistake.
Yes. You are time barred.
You have 6 years from the date of incident so 2005, as such you are out in time.
Even if you sued for negligence then it could be 3 years from date of discovery, which even then would be 2009
I am sorry
