Statute-Barred

If you are injured in an accident that is not your fault, you have a certain amount of time to make a claim for compensation. This period is usually 3 years from the 'date of knowledge'.

The limitation date is the last day of the limitation period. After the limitation date, a claim will usually be 'statute-barred'.

Statute-barred means the court will no longer accept a claim submission unless there are exceptional circumstances.
