HELPLINE: ☎ 1800 633634

The relevant law in Victoria can be found in The Limitation of Actions Act 1958 as subsequently amended. Victoria medical negligence solicitors must either settle claims or issue proceedings in a court of law is usually three years from the date of the incident that gives rise to the action or three years from the date that the potential claimant knew or should have known about the injury, however there are certain exceptions to this general rule.

It will be presumed that a parent will protect a child's interests by bringing proceedings and the limitation period for minors is 6 years from the date the parents knew or should have known about the injury, that the injury was caused by the fault of the defendant and that the injury was serious enough to justify legal proceedings. Other provisions allow legal proceedings to be brought later if the child has not been in the custody of a parent or guardian and protect children in cases where the parent might be influenced by the potential defendant not to bring the claim.

Legal proceedings claiming damages for personal injury cannot be brought after 12 years from the date of the incident that is alleged to have caused the injury however there is judicial discretion to extend the limitation period where it is in the interests of justice to do so.

Limitation is complex and difficult law and advice should always be obtained from a specialist qualified solicitor. For free advice on no win no pay compensation claims just complete the contact form and a specialist solicitor will phone with advice at no cost and with no obligation
