The statute of limitations refers to your deadline to file a lawsuit in court. If you do not file your lawsuit in court within the statute of limitations period for your case then you will never be able to recover compensation for your injury in a court of law.
The statute of limitations for your case depends on a number of different facts but the deadline generally begins on the date the injury occurs.
In many injury cases the statute of limitations is 2-years from the date of the injury. However, in some circumstances the deadline can be much shorter.
