Maine Personal Injury FAQ
How long do I have to file a personal injury claim in Maine?
You’ll need to file a personal injury claim before the statute of limitations on your accident runs out. The statute of limitations is the time limit the state gives you to file your lawsuit. In Maine, the typical timeline in which you must file your personal injury lawsuit is within 6 years of the date of your accident. However, there can be various exceptions to this and you should never wait to call an attorney to review your case. The evidence and statements pertaining to your case lose value over time. This, among other reasons, could make it difficult for you to receive compensation if you wait too long to start your lawsuit process with an experienced attorney.
