i am having difficulty in finding out exactly when the clock starts ticking with respect to time limits for bringing a claim under 14A i.e. when does the 3 year limit start and end?
i receive an email on say july 15 2010 alerting me a fact that may give rise to a negligence claim (the original period of six years has already passed) what is the deadline for bringing a claim under 14A i.e. the last date when i can deposit my claim form with the court?
you say probably!! doesn't the clock start ticking from the day after july 15?
hi yes i understand that but when does the 3 years expire?
you sent me this link last year - http://www.addleshawgoddard.com/view.asp?content_id=4598&parent_id=4593
for calculating the dates, is it wrong? where can i find within the 1980 act how to calculate the dates, or anywhere else?
so when the act says i have 3 years from the date of knowledge where does it state that i have to start proceedings one day before that date? sorry for harping on but why is contract limitation different to a negligence claim in the eyes of limitation?
do you know of any case law where a claim is thrown out for being statute barred by a day as you have indicated above i.e. issuing on 15 july which should have been on july 14? cheers
sorry to be a pain but can you send me any links where claims have been struck out (professional negligence claims against solicitors) because they are late by the smallest of margins.
tried bailii but i can't find any case law that fits!
