OTC Travel Talks: Limitation in Czech Republic, Denmark & Poland Part 1

Watch Ian Denham, Klára Dvořáková, Kira Kolby Christensen and Gabriela Lenarczyk in the latest travel law vlog; ‘OTC Travel Talks’. This episode focuses on the limitation periods in Czech Republic, Denmark & Poland for personal injury claims.

Outer Temple’s Ian Denham was joined by Klára Dvořáková (Partner at Holubová, Prague, Czech Republic), Kira Kolby Christensen (Partner at Elmer Advokater, Copenhagen, Denmark) and Gabriela Lenarczyk (Associate at Budzowska Fiutowski & Partners, Krakow, Poland) in the first of this two-part discussion on limitations in their respective jurisdictions.

In this episode, Ian discusses limitation periods, a key issue for cases which run in England but apply foreign law. Ian and our guests consider:

  • The applicable limitation based on the cause of the injury or the type of cause of action.
  • When the ‘clock starts’ for limitation purposes in different scenarios.
  • Whether limitation period is any different for children or a person without legal capacity.
