What is the statute of limitations?

The term “statute of limitations” refers to the amount of time in which an individual can bring forward a claim for compensation for injuries or other types of damages that may have been done to them or their loved ones. Typically, the statute of limitations begins at the time of the injury, although in certain circumstances, it may not begin until the individual should reasonably have been expected to become aware of their injury. Additionally, the statute of limitations can vary in length based on the type of claim, such as medical malpractice versus child injury claim.
