What is Statute of Limitations?

You have probably heard of the statute of limitations as it relates to criminal cases.

There are also limits of time in which a citizen can file a lawsuit for an injury from another party.

In wrongful death claims, you generally only have six years or less to file a lawsuit against the responsible parties. These laws differ depending on the type of accidental death and the party responsible.
