You generally have a strict three year deadline from the date of an accident in which to settle the claim or issue court proceedings. For children, the three years runs from their eighteenth birthday rather than the date of the accident.
For accidents that happen during air and sea travel, the time limit is shorter at two years. Also, if your accident happened abroad the time limit is determined by the law of the foreign country, which can be as short as one year.
