What is the statute of limitations?
When a plaintiff suffers an injury in a car accident, he or she doesn’t have an infinite amount of time in which to pursue financial compensation. Each state has a statute of limitations that puts a time limit on how long an individual has to take legal action after being injured by a negligent person’s actions. And, while the statute of limitations varies depending on the type of case, in Wisconsin a plaintiff has three years from the date of the car accident to file a civil lawsuit.
If you wait too long to file your civil case you lose your opportunity to obtain financial compensation. For more information about the statute of limitations and how it applies to your case, contact a Rhinelander car accident lawyer of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. today at 800-242-2874.
