In Ontario, you typically have two years from the date of the injury, or the day you learned that the harm had happened, to file a personal injury claim. The limitation period does not begin in the instance of birth or perinatal damage until the child reaches the age of majority, which in Ontario is 18 years old. Suppose the kid is legally “incapable” of beginning action when they come to adulthood due to a physical, mental, or psychological ailment. In that case, the limitation period might be extended even further. The limitation period does not begin to run in this case until a Litigation Guardian is appointed for the lawsuit’s objectives.
To ensure that the suitable measures are completed and that deadlines are not missed, it is advisable to contact a lawyer as soon as possible. Of course, you do not have to hire a lawyer immediately, but learning about your legal rights as quickly as possible might be beneficial.
