Statute of Limitations
The Statute of Limitations Puts a Time Limit On Your Case — Contact Jeff Martin Today
A statute of limitation is a law establishing the time limit within which a lawsuit must be brought. The time limit is different, depending on the case. For example, the statute of limitations for a personal injury lawsuit typically ranges from as brief as 180 days to up to two years in most cases. For children who are injured, the statute of limitations does not start until they turn 18 years old.
Don’t Put Your Personal Injury Case in Jeopardy Because the Statute of Limitations Expired
You don’t want to risk running out of time because of the statute of limitations. That’s why you should contact an attorney immediately after suffering any injury so that the appropriate statute of limitations can be determined. Get in touch with the Law Offices of Jeff Martin as soon as you can for a free and confidential consultation.
It’s important to know that if you suffer a hidden injury, the discovery rule may apply. This means that the time begins to run out when the person who is injured learned that he or she was injured. For example, someone who is exposed to a toxic substance such as asbestos might not exhibit symptoms immediately.
