What Is Statute of Limitations?

You have probably heard of the statute of limitations as it relates to criminal cases. Once a crime has been discovered, prosecutors only have a set amount of time to go after the person who has committed the crime. There are also limits of time in which a citizen can file a lawsuit for an injury from another party.

In wrongful death claims, you generally only have six years or less to file a lawsuit against the responsible parties. These laws differ depending on the type of accidental death and the party responsible.

It is best to contact a wrongful death attorney as soon as possible to preserve evidence, and get statements from witnesses while their memories are still fresh.
