How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Claim in Illinois?

According to the 735 Illinois Compiled Statutes section 5/13-202, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases in the state of Illinois is two years. The statute of limitations is a law that determines how long injury victims have to file a claim to pursue compensation for their injuries before they lose their legal right to do so.

This means you have two years from the date your injury occurred to file, or you risk losing your right to do so. It’s important to note that there are exceptions that can change this time limit, so it’s important you speak to an experienced Chicago personal injury attorney about the specifics of your case as soon as possible.

Examples of some of these exceptions include:

  • If the injury victim was a minor when the accident occurred
  • If the alleged negligent party leaves the state of Illinois before a claim can be filed

The statute of limitations has a big impact on your ability to file a claim so it’s important to speak to an experienced lawyer about the specifics of your case as soon as possible. Cogan & Power, P.C. offers free, no-obligation consultations so you have nothing to lose by contacting our firm today!
