Under the “statute of limitations” in the state of Massachusetts, you have three years to file a personal injury claim in civil court. The three-year window starts from the date of the accident unless a latent injury was obtained wherein discovery of injury comes in at a later date, therein making the three-year window start on the “discovery date” of your illness or injury. Any lawsuit filed after three years from date of injury or discovery date will result to the loss of right of claim on the injured party. Unless, an insurance claim is filed and pushes through, then the three-year window won’t even matter.
