What is The Statute of Limitations for a Personal Injury Claim in Ohio?
The Statute of Limitations is the time limit that an injured plaintiff has to file a claim. The claimant has to file a claim in Ohio no later than two years from the cause of action. An individual has two years to file a personal injury claim (§ 2305.10) in the Buckeye State from the date that the injury occurred.
Claims that are made outside of this two year limitation period significantly risk the ability to recover compensation for the damages. If the statute of limitations has expired the injured party has missed the window to file a claim and thus will not be able to file a claim for the injuries suffered.
