How Much Time Do I Have To File a Personal Injury Claim?
The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Rhode Island is three years. If you wish to file a lawsuit against the person who caused your injury, you must do it within that period of time. The clock usually starts ticking at the date the injury occurred, but you may qualify for an extension if your injury was not reasonably discovered until later on.
