Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply as this is not an ‘on demand’ live service, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return. There is no need to wait here, you will get an email when I reply.
Just to clarify the position, this happened in 2006, is that right?
Its bad news I am afraid.
Under the Limitation Act 1980 you have 6 years to bring a claim in the Courts.
If he died in 2006 and you were due to travel in June 2006 limitation would have expired in June 2012.
Any claim therefore is statue barred by almost 2 years.
I am sorry if this is not the answer you want and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Ok - let me get this changed.
