The limitation is two years. If today's the last day then you absolutely must commence a legal action today. You must do this by actually issuing the claim in court today. It does not have to be served today but must be taken out by the court. You must have the claim issued which means the court has to start the file and sign and/or stamp the claim.

There are no exceptions.
