If you feel we may be able to help with such a claim, we would be pleased to discuss our services with you.
Time limits in claims involving children
The ordinary three year period does not commence until a child reaches majority age, which means they have until their 21st birthday in which to start court proceedings. However if the child has a mental disorder the time limit may well not apply.
