Each state has a different statute of limitations for personal injury cases. A statute of limitations refers to the amount of time someone has to file a personal injury claim after the date of their injury. Most states have a statute of limitations of 2 years for personal injury cases, meaning people only have two years to file a claim after the day they were injured. Other states have statute of limitations of 3 years, 4 years, and even 1 year. It is important to contact a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible.
