Every civil lawsuit has an expiration time, or statute of limitations, for filing a claim in the court. We will stay ahead of the time limits and provide adequate administrative notice to required parties based on the type of claim. For most personal injury claims, the statute of limitations is two years from the date when the accident occurred or when the cause of action accrued.
Ohio has a discovery rule provision, whereby you could extend the time for filing an injury claim. This rule provides that an injury cause of action may not accrue until you discover, or should have discovered through reasonable diligence, that an injury occurred.
