State Civil Statute of Limitations Laws

A statute of limitations defines the time period in which a lawsuit must be filed. Choose a state from the map or list below for state-specific laws on statutes of limitations for different types of civil cases, including personal injury, malpractice, contract cases, and more.

Have Your Injury Claim Evaluated for Free

Finding a qualified personal injury attorney who knows the deadlines for filing in your state can mean the difference between receiving compensation for your injuries and being barred from filing your case at all. A skilled attorney will evaluate all the facts surrounding your injury and advise you on how to move forward with your claim. A good first step is to have your claim evaluated for free by an experienced injury attorney. However, if you have a non-injury claim, such as a potential fraud action, you should speak to an attorney who specializes in those type of lawsuits to find out more.
