Statutes of Limitations for Personal Injury Claims

4682892162_3d50b238d5_z-Copy.jpgIn every state, including New Jersey, there are deadlines by which a lawsuit must be filed. These are called Statutes of Limitations. If the defendant is a municipal entity, there are additional notices required to be served with much shorter deadlines. These are called Tort Claims Notices.

Generally the Statute of Limitations for a personal injury case is two years from the date of the accident. If the Defendant is the State of New Jersey or some other municipal entity you generally must serve a Tort Claims Notice within 90 days of the accident. Failure to do so may doom your claim. Municipal entities include counties, towns, Boards of Education, Police and Fire Departments.

It is very important that you consult an attorney as soon as possible after an accident to protect your rights. If you have questions about filing a personal injury claim in New Jersey, contact the experienced personal injury attorneys at Cohn, Lifland, Pearlman, Herrmann, and Knopf, LLP.
