In Ontario, statute requires every case to be started within a prescribed period of time, failing which your claim could be forever statute barred, meaning you will forever be unable to commence a court case to seek compensation for your injuries.
The Ontario Limitations Act and other statutes limiting rights of injured persons are often amended and the law in this area is very complex. In most, but not all, personal injury cases in Ontario, the statute of limitation is 2 years.
However, the statute of limitation may vary depending on the nature of your case and periods as short as 10 days can have a significant impact on your right to sue.
