Is there a deadline for claiming compensation?

There is no definitive deadline for claiming compensation. However, issues regarding claims for compensation are subject to the legislation on expiry of debt. According to legislation, the right to compensation expires three years after the afflicted party found out or should have found out about the damage and the responsible party, unless the expiry has been interrupted. Interrupting the expiry refers to situations where a claim for compensation has been presented to the government, the government has been reminded of the liability for compensation, or a complaint has been filed against the government.
