Good afternoon. Thank you for the question. It is my pleasure to assist you with this today.
Your claim would be against the language therapist in negligence. You would bring the claim against the employer on the basis that they are vicariously (jointly) liable for the conduct of their employees servants and agents.
Time doesn’t start to run until you reach 18 years of age and there is a six-year time limit either from the negligent act, or 18 years of age if later, or from the date of knowledge subject to a long stop period of 15 years.
Doing some simple maths, you now appear to be 34 years old because you say that you are diagnosed with aspergers in 2012 when you were 34.
That is 16 years ago and hence you are out of time for bringing a claim against the school.
There would be no legal aid for this and even if you were in time, you will be forced to pay your own legal costs is and it is unlikely that would get solicitors to deal with this on a no win no fee basis.
I’m sorry, I wish I could give you a more favourable answer but that’s the situation.
Does that answer the question? Can I answer any specific points arising from this?
