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.
