What is the statute of limitations?

The statute of limitations is a term in personal injury law that refers to the limited amount of time in which a litigant can bring forward a claim for damages. Typically, statutes of limitations for personal injury cases are only a few years in length, and the amount of time available to file certain claims, like medical malpractice, can be even shorter. After the time period allotted in the statute of limitations has passed, an injury victim may no longer have the ability to file a claim for compensation.
