What is a statute of limitations?

Posted under FAQ

A statute of limitations refers to the law that mandates how long a person can wait before filing a lawsuit. With personal injury claims like auto accidents, premises liability, product liability, medical malpractice, etc., the statute of limitations is usually two years from the time of the accident, but in Wisconsin, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims is three years. In rare cases, your claim might be considered outside the statute of limitations, such as if a medical condition arises later that failed to reveal itself during the statute of limitations period.
