New Jersey Statutes of Limitations

When civil lawsuits are filed in New Jersey, the state’s statute of limitations provides the deadline for when a suit must be filed. For criminal charges, the statute of limitations prohibits prosecutors from charging for the commission of a crime after the passage of a specified number of years. Each state has different statutes of limitations for various types of civil actions and crimes. For instance, there is a two-year time limit to bring an “injury to person” case, but a six-year limit to sue for “injury to personal property.” Click on the links below for more on New Jersey’s statutes of limitations.
