What is a statute of limitation?

  • A statute of limitations is a time frame within which you must bring your lawsuit.
  • In New Jersey, the statute of limitations is generally two years.
  • If a municipality is involved in your case or some other governmental entity, you may have to file what’s called a tort notice of claim within 90 days of the happening of your accident.
