The statute of limitations bars the amount of time that an individual or party has to take legal action after an incident has taken place, an injury has occurred, a diagnosis has been made, or an event has taken place.
The statute of limitations is set by the state that you live in.
These statutes differ for different types of accidents, injuries, events, and other legal actions.
If you have suffered a personal injury, you may be asking, “what are my State’s statute of limitations?”.
Use the guide below as a broad outline of statute of limitations state-by-state.
This guideline is by no means a definitive outline of state statute of limitations by state, but rather a reference for potential limitations.
Depending on the legal action you plan to take and the district that you plan to file your civil lawsuit in, these SOL’s may change.
Consult with an experienced personal injury lawyer to discuss your situation and determine what your SOL timeline looks like.
