Each state sets a time limit – known as the statute of limitations
– to file a lawsuit in civil court after a person suffers an injury.
In Indiana, an injured party has
two years to file a
personal injury lawsuit.
This two-year time limit begins running on the date of the accident. Unfortunately,
if an injured party does not file a lawsuit before the two-year time limit,
he or she will lose their right to have a court hear their case.
For injury claims against a city or county, an injured party has 180 days
to file. For claims against a state government agency, an injured party
has 270 days to file a claim.
Besides personal injury, the following are other causes of action that
fall under the two-year time limit in Indiana:
