North Dakota Statute of Limitations
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 applies to most personal injury cases, including:
- Catastrophic injuries
- Dangerous products
- Dog bites
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Vehicular accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Truck accidents
- Wrongful death
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 learn of the extent of their injuries until months, or even years after 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.
