What is a Statute of Limitations?

It isn’t for any reason that you are urged to take action in pursuing your case shortly after the situation has occurred. The reason why you are urged to act quickly is because there are time limits that you must respect, also known as the Statute of Limitations. In other words, there is a time frame in which you must file your personal injury lawsuit in order for your case to be valid. Otherwise, if legal action isn’t brought in the appropriate amount of time, the case may expire and no longer have the opportunity to be pursued, therefore losing the right to make any claims. With that being said, however, there are different time limits that exist for different types of cases. For example, a lawsuit against a municipality may differ from a lawsuit against another individual.

If you are thinking of bringing legal action to a situation that occurred to you, it may be in your best interest to bring it forward as soon as possible in order to avoid difficulties such as time limitations. For a free consultation, call 1 (844) CANTINI (226-8464).
