Is there a time limit when making a Cerebral Palsy compensation claim?

Yes; the ‘limitation’ period in clinical negligence claims is three years from the date of the injury (the date of the birth) or three years from the date of knowledge of the injury.  However, if a claim is brought on behalf of a minor (a child) then the three year period doesn’t start to run until they reach the age of 18. In rare circumstances and only for exceptional reasons, the Court may use its discretion to extend the limitation period.
