Statutes of Limitations
Personal injury can include any type of harm that comes to your physical health or finances that was caused by another party. As a result, people often file legal claims to receive reparations that will help offset the cost of any injuries or losses.
A legal claim generally needs to be filed within a certain time frame for you to be able to seek compensation. Statutes of limitations laws determine how long you have to file a civil claim. Such laws vary by state and type of case. Attorney Thomas Bixby is licensed to practice law in Vermont, Massachusetts, and New York and is available for consultation to discuss your potential case.
