Frequently asked questions

Yes, there are time limits for making a birth injury claim. If the claim is for the injured child, it can be filed anytime before their 18th birthday. After that, they have three years to file their own claim (until age 21). However, if the child lacks the mental capacity to make a claim, there may be no time limit. Claims for birth injuries sustained by the mother typically have a three-year time limit from the date of injury.
