What are statutes of limitations?

When an individual in New Jersey gets injured, they may be facing significant medical bills, lost wages due to time out of work, and other expenses as well as loss of enjoyment of life. Being injured in an accident due to someone else’s negligence can be completely devastating for a person and can change their life forever. They may never be able to work again, walk again, or conduct their life as they once did. Injuries that stem from another individual’s negligence may be grounds for legal action.

If an individual has been injured due to the negligence of another person or entity, they may want to consider their legal options. If they wish to bring a personal injury claim, they may be able to recover significant economic and noneconomic damages that can help cover the costs related to the accident. That being said, it is important to make sure that the injured party abides by the statutes of limitations that are in place in New Jersey. The injured party only has two years from the date of the accident to file a claim. It is important to note that if they are bringing action against a public entity, they may have to file a Notice of Tort Claim as well.
