The statute of limitations specifies how much time a plaintiff has to file a claim against a potential defendant. Each state has a different statute of limitations based on the type of claim. Failure to file a personal injury claim within the statute of limitations can lead to dismissal of the claim. If you have been injured in an accident due to someone else’s negligence, you should contact a qualified personal injury lawyer immediately to make sure that you do not miss your state’s statute of limitations.
