When to File a Claim for False Imprisonment in Ottawa
Every year in Ottawa and in cities and towns across Eastern Ontario, people are falsely imprisoned. False imprisonment is the detention of a person without legal justification or consent. Being a victim of false imprisonment doesn’t require actual physical force or actually being locked in a prison.
If you did not commit a crime but are detained against your will without lawful justification, verbally or by force, you may have been falsely imprisoned.
The most common form of false imprisonment we see is when a store manager or store/mall security suspect you have stolen something, and you are detained. This may be considered imprisonment. Other scenarios not commonly associated with “imprisonment” could include the driver of a car proceeding at such a speed as to prevent a passenger from exiting, or being cast adrift in a boat.
These are only a few examples of instances in which you could have been detained against your will or without justification. If you were falsely imprisoned in another way, and you are interested in learning more about what legal options may be available to you, do not hesitate to contact the false imprisonment lawyers at SG Injury Law to discuss your case further.
Limitations Period for Ottawa False Imprisonment Claims
You may be interested in making sure the individual or entity responsible for your false imprisonment is held accountable to the fullest extent of the law. If you hope to do so, you need to act quickly.
The Ontario Limitations Act sets the amount of time injury victims have to pursue civil claims in Ottawa and across Ontario. Generally, you will have just two years to get your claim filed before the limitations period expires.
However, this deadline may not always be clear depending, especially in cases involving false imprisonment. Do not let the limitations period expire before you have had a chance to file your civil claim for false imprisonment. Speak with an Ottawa false imprisonment lawyer to find out what your options are and ensure that any relevant deadlines are met.
Compensation for Victims of False Imprisonment in Ottawa
The trauma you experienced due to false imprisonment could have affected your life in a number of ways. You have the right to be compensated for all of them. The compensation you receive can depend on factors such as whether physical force was used, whether you were injured, the length of the containment, the treatment you received, and whether there has been any damage to your reputation. It is important to work with a false imprisonment lawyer that has experience handling false imprisonment cases. Your lawyer must understand how these cases can affect your life, how to prove the validity of your damages, and how to build a case for compensation.
