Injury Statute of Limitations in Washington, D.C.
In terms of personal injury, a "statute of limitations" outlines how long an injured person has to file a lawsuit. These statutes vary by state and by case type.
Generally speaking, the statute of limitations for filing a personal injury claim or lawsuit in Washington, D.C. is three years. The window of time begins on the date of your accident, or, in some cases, the date on which the injury was discovered.
This is because not all injuries are immediately detectable. Sometimes, people take years to discover their illness or ailment. There are a number of exceptions and nuances to the personal injury statute of limitations, which is why it's always best to consult an attorney before filing your claim.
