Statute of Limitations in North Dakota Personal Injury Cases
Insight from Our Fargo Personal Injury Attorneys
After you have suffered an injury, it is most important to seek medical
attention right away. As you recover, whether it be months or years after
the incident, you may wish to pursue justice for the circumstances of
your injury. For every
personal injury claim, the law has dictated
a prescribed amount of time within which you are required to file your claim.
How Much Time Do You Have?
For personal injury cases in North Dakota, if you fail to file your claim
within 6 years of the incident, then you will no longer be able to pursue
compensation for your loss. Wrongful death claims only allow for 2 years
from the date of the accident and medical malpractice allows only 2 years
in some cases, but up to 6 years in others, depending on when the malpractice
is realized. With the guidance of an experienced personal injury attorney
in Fargo, we can help you know how to appropriately file and avoid passing
the statute of limitation.

The statute of limitations can range from one to six years, depending on
the type of injury. This law was created to protect individuals who don't

an accident has occurred. However, if you do not take action to file a
claim within this timeframe, you may miss your opportunity to have your
case heard in front of a judge or jury.
