Statute of Limitations Archives

Time is ticking! How much time is left to file your lawsuit?

In every state there are statutes in place which provide a time limit for filing a lawsuit.  These time limits (in legalese called "Statute of Limitation") vary from state to state, and they also vary depending on the type of legal claim you are trying to raise (i.e. personal injury, medical malpractice, contract disputes to name but a few).  The clock starts ticking for the statute of limitation on the date your legal claim arises or accrues.  If you are injured in a car accident, for example, the statute of limitations clock would start ticking on the date of the accident.  There are a few exceptions that will permit a longer statute of limitations period.  If you try to file a lawsuit beyond the statute of limitations your case will be dismissed!
