how long after a statement of claim has been filed with the court to recover personal injury costs loss of wages physiotherapy etc resulting from being physically hit by car does the defendant have to submit a statement of defense after being servrd. Thankyou. This is for Alberta.
Province/Territory relating to question: Alberta
I currently have a lawyer who has commenced legal action, however I do not feel that he has been agressiv enough in persuing the defenses lawyers as it has now been about three months since they were advised of the claim being filed against their client. Thankyou
It's usually 20 days after the Defendant is served.
So if the Defendant has been served then they have given him/her more time for some reason.
