The Statute of Limitations in Personal Injury Cases
Illinois’ statute of limitations law can be found in the 735 Illinois Compiled Statutes section 5/13-202 and it states that injury victims have two years to file a claim before the statute of limitations runs out. The statute of limitations is a law that governs how long a claimant has to file a personal injury claim before their legal right to recover compensation ends. This time limit, however, can be shortened or extended depending on the circumstances of your case. If you want to learn more about how the statute of limitations may affect you contact our office today.
