You may be asking yourself the following question: How much time do I have to file a lawsuit for my injuries or for the death of a loved one? The rules that answer this question are called “Statutes of Limitations”.
These rules provide that if you don’t file a lawsuit within the time allotted, you can NEVER file a lawsuit to be compensated for your injuries or the death of a loved one.
Each state has its own Statutes of Limitations. In addition, you may have a claim pursuant to a law of the United States which may contain its own unique statute of limitations. Click here for a description of the statutes of limitations for injury and death claims in Pennsylvania.
