How Long After an Accident Can You Claim an Injury?

In Indiana, all legal claims have a statute of limitations. A statute of limitations is the time limit for filing a lawsuit for any particular claim. For claims of personal injury or property damage, the statute of limitations is two years from the date of the occurrence that caused the injury or property damage. There are some exceptions to this rule, but the general rule is two years from the date of the occurrence. If someone was hurt in a car crash (a driver, passenger, motorcycle rider, bicyclist, or pedestrian) or if there was damage to the vehicle or other personal property the lawsuit must filed against any potential responsible party within two years of the date of the crash.
