Under the laws of every state there are restrictions as to when a case must be filed known as the Statute of Limitations. Statutes of Limitations (SOL) are statutory provisions that determine a time frame during which a victim must file a lawsuit against those responsible for your injuries. If the victim in the potential action fails to bring his or her claim before the expiration of the Statute of Limitation for that offense, he or she may be barred from ever bringing the claim in the future. Many states have laws that extend the typical Statue of Limitation in cases of child sexual abuse. Statutes of Limitations differ from state to state, and it is important that if you have been a victim of sexual abuse that you do not delay in getting competent legal advice regarding your potential claim.
