How long do I have to bring a lawsuit against those who are legally responsible for my personal injuries?
Every case is subject to a statute of limitations. In the work we do, personal injury cases, most of the statute of limitations are four years. Medical malpractice statutes of limitations are two years with an ability to expand the time. Products liability are four years with an ability to expand the time. When I say that, use that phrase I talk about, an ability to extend the time because you did not discover the injury or it took a while to develop. Two years and four years are the primary time periods, and we’d much rather see a case earlier than later and then have to deal with that problem.
