About the Arkansas Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury Claims
If you've been injured in Arkansas, it's important to act fast. That's because injury victims have a limited window of time to file personal injury actions in Arkansas.
Legally, this is known as the statute of limitations, which is a state law limiting the amount of time personal injury victims have to file a lawsuit after an accident. These laws vary from state-to-state and sometimes case-to-case. However, after this window of time expires, injury victims have missed their deadline to file a personal injury lawsuit for their injuries. Upon a claim becoming overdue, injury victims have no further opportunity to revive it. Injury victims no longer have a right to file a lawsuit seeking compensation for their injuries or other damages.
How long do I have to file a case?
Under the Arkansas statute of limitations, injury victims generally have the following amount of time from when they were injured or first became aware of their injuries:
- Personal injury - three years
- Product liability - three years
- Medical malpractice - two years
Personal injury and wrongful death cases can be complicated, which is why you should consult with an attorney as soon as possible to discuss the specific circumstances.
