What is the statute of limitations?

When a person suffers an injury caused by someone else and wants to pursue compensation for their damages, they do not have an unlimited amount of time in which to do so. In fact, there is a strict limit on the amount of time that an individual can wait before filing a claim. Known as the statute of limitations, this restriction prohibits anyone who has waited past a set deadline from filing a claim for their damages.
