Auto Accident Claim Timeframe

Do You Know There Are Time Limits To File An Auto Accident Lawsuit In Indiana?

In Indiana, individuals who wish to pursue compensation via a lawsuit due to injuries suffered in an auto accident typically have only two years to take action. This is known as the statute of limitations period. If the injured person is a minor, he/she will typically have to file their claim within two years of their 18th birthday.

More About The Statute Of Limitations Period

The two-year clock starts on the day of the incident. It is important to contact an attorney to help you with your injury claim well within this two year period.

Sadly, many people wait too long to file a claim. In Indiana, if the statute of limitation expires, you will likely be barred from filing a claim and recovering compensation.

If someone dies in a car accident, the two-year limitation still applies. However, the deadline starts the day of the person’s death. This could be later than the date of the accident.
