What is the statute of limitations?
The statute of limitations is defined as the period of time after an accident during which you are eligible to make a claim against the party at fault. In the state of Wisconsin, the statute of limitations for a personal injury case is 3 years. If you do not file a claim within 3 years after the accident, then you are no longer eligible to do so.
In special cases, for example, with regards to accidents involving state or local government-employed workers, the claim must be filed within 120 days of the incident.
