Your Child Still Has Time

You may still have time to pursue a claim for personal injury if your child was injured in an automobile accident or otherwise suffered serious bodily injury when under the age of 18.

The statute of limitations for an automobile accident normally is two years from the date of the accident. However, the statute of limitations generally does not apply to minors (those under 18 years of age). The law often allows such persons’ statute of limitation to begin once they turn 18; thus, they have until they are 20 to pursue a claim even if the injury occurred several years earlier!
