Is it ever too late to bring a claim?

There are laws called “statutes of limitation,” which prohibit the bringing of old claims. For many claims, these statutes of limitations may be as short as three years, and sometimes even less, although there are several exceptions. There may also be important “notice” provisions, which require that you take action to preserve your rights well in advance of the statute of limitation deadlines. Failing to comply with these provisions of the law could bar you from pursuing a legal remedy to recover for your personal injuries and damages. You should consult with a lawyer as soon as you are aware that you have been injured. Even if you were injured some time ago, you may still be able to bring a claim. There may be exceptions that increase or decrease the statute of limitations.
