How Many Years Do I Have to Sue for a Car Accident in Wisconsin?
What is the Time Limit to File a Lawsuit?
Typically, personal injury victims have three years from the date of the car accident to file a lawsuit. As of February 6, 2016, some statutes of limitations in Wisconsin changed. If you were injured in a car accident before February 6, 2016, you may have a different statute of limitations.
How long you have to sue may vary under certain circumstances, such as if the injured person was under 18 or mentally incompetent. It’s best to contact an experienced Milwaukee car crash attorney as soon as possible after the accident, even if you’re not sure yet if you’re going to sue, to find out what your time limit really is.
