Is there a time limit on filing a personal injury claim in Newfoundland and Labrador?

Yes. For claims of personal injury or bodily injury, the time limit is usually two years. This is called the limitation period. This can be extended to a maximum of ten years if the basis for the claim was not reasonably discoverable by the injury victim, until a later date. The law also provides for a postponement of time running against a claim while the injured person is a minor, or while they are under a mental or physical disability. This is a technical area of the law, so anyone who thinks that he or she might have a legal excuse for not suing within the usual two-year limitation period should talk to a good injury lawyer.
