Statutes of Limitations

Statutes of limitations are laws that set limits on the amount of time after a collision or accident that you can file a formal complaint in court. In some cases you may have as little as six months to take legal action. (See our GOVERNMENT CLAIMS page).

If you are involved in a collision with a motor vehicle driven by a private individual, typically you have two years from the date of the collision to file a complaint in Superior Court.

Simply bringing the claim to the attention of an insurance company does not satisfy the statute of limitations. Therefore, if you are discussing your claim with an insurance company, you must remain mindful of the limitations period.

If you have a claim, do not wait until it is too late to contact an experienced bicycle accident attorney, motorcycle accident attorney, or scooter accident attorney. When you contact our office, at a minimum, we will provide you with free initial advice regarding your claim, including advice on when you should take formal legal action.
