Time frame to bring a negligence suit

If you have been harmed by the negligence of someone else, you only have a certain amount of time to recover damages from this person. The time frame to bring suit varies on several different factors, such as whether the person harmed was a minor, the state the injury occurred, and the context of the negligence. In the standard car accident in Missouri, an injured person will have five years to bring this cause of action. If this person fails to bring the cause of action within five years from the date of the accident this claim it will be forever lost. As such, it is important to be prudent with your claim.
