Alex Hughes :

My name isXXXXX and I'm happy to help with your question today. I need to ask you some preliminary questions to be able to help you.

Alex Hughes :

Was any legal action taken 22 years ago? If not, why has it taken this long to surface?

Customer:

Hello Alex, There were circumstances that made me mentally impaired for 3 years and I was told after three years by a member of the public that I could not take legal action. I have been mentally impaired for many years since. However, I am in good mental health now.

Alex Hughes :

Thanks for the additional information. The Limitations Act 1980 imposes time limits on when legal action can be commenced in certain case. Unfortunately the time limit for the action you wish to take has well and truly expired.
