Restrictions & Timing

Helping You Meet The Criteria For A Car Accident Claim

When you are hurt and recovering, you should not have to think about legal technicalities. However, it is a fact that your claim for compensation and any other legal action must meet certain criteria to be successful. Time restrictions, known in law as limitation periods, apply to claims under no-fault insurance and to lawsuits for compensation for your injuries. A lawyer is your best source of information with regards to limitation periods and your best route to making sure your auto accident claim is done the right way, so you get the compensation you need.

Our lawyers at MacGillivray Injury and Insurance Law are experienced with Nova Scotia car accident claims. We have focused our practice since 1994 on helping injured people. We have lawyers and staff in two offices, Halifax and New Glasgow, and consistently provide effective and personal representation to our clients.

Time Restrictions In Car Accident Lawsuits

Generally, it is a good idea to sue the other driver in an accident within one year of the collision. The limitation period for such actions is actually two years in Nova Scotia, although it may be extended under certain conditions. Other time limits will apply to Section B no-fault claims under your contract of insurance.

Contacting a lawyer promptly after a car accident is important. Part of our job is to build a strong case for you. Preserving evidence from the scene of the accident, gathering witness statements and consulting with accident reconstruction specialists are all important parts of the work we do. When you get in touch with us, we can help you assess your legal options. When we become your law firm, we can help you exercise your legal rights for fair compensation.
