Statute of Limitations Information for Personal
What is the so-called "statute of limitations" for tort
personal injury claims? Each state has a law where there is
a certain time frame within which a lawsuit must be "filed
and served", or it will be forever barred. That is the
statute of limitations: it limits the time one has to pursue
a tort injury claim. It is not a squishy thing where you can
make an excuse for not filing in time, no matter how good
your excuse ("I got in an accident a week before the
expiration of the statutory time and was recovering in the
hospital" will have about as much impact on the judge as "my
dog ate my lawsuit on the last day").
You will be forever barred from recovery if you fail to
preserve your claim by filing and serving it in time. Other
than specific age, competency, or access disabilities, THERE
ARE NO EXCEPTIONS, even if your lawsuit is a slam-dunk
winner. You could have a personal injury claim of agreed
liability (even where the insurance adjuster admits
liability) and the only argument is over the value of a huge
damages claim; but you will have no means of recovery if you
let the statute of limitations lapse.
The statute starts running "on the clock" the day that you
discover you have suffered injury as the result of the
actions (or inactions) of another. In personal injury
claims, that is the day of the incident.
