TIME IS NOT TO BE IGNORED - NJ STATUTES OF LIMITATION

image16

Tort Claims Cases -- (Claims against Public Entities) A Notice must be sent to the public entity -- the State of New Jersey, the county or municipality,  the local school board, or any other public agency within 90 days of the date of your accident.   Do not hesitate to call with questions!


Personal Injury Cases -  (Auto, Premises, Fall Down, Assault, etc.) A complaint must be filed in State or Federal Court within 2 Years of the date of your accident, but don't wait that long - important evidence can be destroyed or irretrievably lost   The earlier you get legal advice, the more thorough your claim will be made.  Auto accidents involving Uninsured or Under-insured motorists must be made within 6 years of the date of the accidents, but you may be required to act sooner to preserve the claim against the person who caused the accident.  These claims are complicated, and you should seek out our advice.


Medical Malpractice Cases - Generally speaking a claim against a medical professional must be made within 2 years of the date of the medical negligence that gives rise to your harm.  There are exceptions, however, that permit that 2 year period to be extended.  Call if you have questions regarding your particular case. 


Legal Malpractice Cases - Claims against legal professionals must be presented within 6 years of the date of the legal negligence.   That passage of time, however causes faded memories and lost evidence, so waiting can compromise your claim.


Workers' Compensation Claims - Must be filed within 2 years of the last payment made by the Workers' Compensation carrier, or within 2 years of the accident if the employer has denied the claim.
