For most personal injury claims, including those arising from electrocution incidents, the time limit for initiating a claim is generally three years from the date of the incident that caused the injury.
However, the time limit may commence from the date you became aware of the injury's consequences; for example, if symptoms of your injury took time to develop and become apparent. This makes sure you have a fair opportunity to seek compensation, even if the full extent of your injuries was not immediately evident.
There are some special considerations that can affect this time limit:
