How long after an accident can you file a claim in Ireland?

Under the civil liablities Act 2004, the time you have to make a claim for an accident is two years from the date the accident occured.

But there are some exceptions to this rule.

How long after an accident can you file a claim in Ireland?

If you do not file within that two-year period, you will not be allowed to file a claim. This two-year time limit period is commonely known as the Statute of Limitations.

However, there are a several exceptions to the two-year limitation:

  1. If the injured person was a child or minor (under the age of 18) when the accident happened;
  2. If you didnt know or could not have reasonably known you were injured;
  3. If you did know or could not have reasonably known who injured you; or
  4. If you filed an  PIAB injury assessment claim and received an acknowledgement letter during the two-year window, time is suspended until you receive an authorisation from the court. When you receive the authorisation, the timer will run as usual.
