The statute of limitations is designed to limit the amount of time people have to file a claim against the party they believe is at fault for losses experienced due to serious damages. There are a variety of limitations. These will be administered depending on the type of case you are dealing with.
A statute of limitations will begin on the initial date of the incident. Under some circumstances, Plaintiff may be granted exceptions. If Plaintiff is not aware of the issue until days, weeks, or even months later, they will have the statute of limitations start on the realization date. If the victim is not 18 years old or older, then the statute of limitations will not begin until they are of legal age. Once Plaintiff is 18 years old, they will be given the established time period to file a lawsuit against Defendant.
