Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
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.
When were you informed by your GP about the allergic reaction please?
Ok - so all in all in 2000 or thereabouts?
Ok - its bad news then I am afraid.
In law you have 3 years to bring a claim in negligence. This means if it was in August 2000 then you had until August 2003 to bring a claim.
This means your claim is statue barred under the Limitation Act 1980
It is an absolute defence. In very rare circumstances a Court can extend it, but only if you are near to the deadline.
Here you are more than 10 years over the deadline and any application is likely to fail
I am sorry if this is not the answer you want and it is 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?
Sadly not - someone else could have acted on your behalf if that was the case.
Can I clarify anything else for you?
No - out of time. There was 3 years from 2000.
I am very sorry.
If this answers your question could I invite you leave feedback on my service which I hope has been excellent today, if you need more information or help then please click reply.
