What is a Statute of Limitation?
The amount of time after you reach the age of 18 before your claim is no longer be enforceable.
The amount of time is different in every state, territory, or other location.
For example, Maine and Guam abolished the statute. Other states such as Louisiana, Arkansas, and North Carolina created temporary windows that revived old claims for a limited period.
In other locations, the time period might be one, two, or ten or more years after you are 18.
In some locations, the period does not start until you could have discovered your injury.
It is not possible for the TCC to advise whether or not your statute has passed because it requires a review of the facts that relate to YOUR claim and the law that controls your claim.
Which Statute Do I Use?
Use the statute of the state or location in which you were abused.
The law of the state or location in which you were abused controls, not where you live now.
If you were abused in more than one location then you have a claim in each location.
