How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Claim in Ohio?
According to the Ohio Revised Code section 2305.10, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases in the state of Ohio is two years. The statute of limitations is a law which limits how long injury victims have to file a personal injury claim before they lose their legal right to do so.
More specifically, this means you have two years from the date your injury occurred to file your claim. Losing your right to file a claim also means losing your right to pursue compensation through a personal injury claim. It’s important to note that there are exceptions that can change this time limit. Some of the most notable exceptions include:
- If the injury victim was a minor at the time of the accident
- If the alleged negligent party leave the state of Ohio before the lawsuit can be filed
- If your injury was caused by a defective product
The statute of limitations has a big impact on your ability to file a claim so it’s important to speak to a skilled attorney about the specifics of your case as soon as you can.
