STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS

STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS:

These are statutes which set forth the maximum period of time in which one can wait before filing a lawsuit, depending on the type of case or claim. If the lawsuit or claim is not filed before the statutory deadline, the right to sue or make a claim is forever barred. The periods vary by state and by type of claim involved. In the State of Washington, the statute of limitations applicable to most claims for personal injuries and damages caused by negligence, including auto accidents, is three years.
