Wisconsin Statutes of Limitations

Statutes of limitations are laws that set time limits for when legal action can be taken. Wisconsin has statutes of limitations for both criminal charges and civil cases. For example, under Wisconsin law, injury lawsuits must be filed within three years of the date of injury, or discovery of the injury in some cases. On the other hand, prosecutors must file charges for misdemeanor offenses within three years of the offense. If you've been injured or involved in a crime in Wisconsin, it's important to understand the state's statutes of limitations.
