Statute of Limitations for Filing a South Prairie Auto Collision Claim

If you want to file a lawsuit against the at-fault driver or any other party who may be responsible for your South Prairie car crash, it is extremely important to know about the time limits under Washington State law. Under Washington law, the statute of limitations for most types of motor vehicle crash lawsuits is three years. The statute of limitations places a specific “clock” on civil lawsuits. The clock on these claims will start to “tick” on the date of the plaintiff’s injury. The plaintiff absolutely must file a lawsuit before the clock runs out, or stops ticking. If the plaintiff does not get the claim filed within this three-year window, the civil lawsuit will become time-barred under Washington law.
