Illinois Statute of Limitations Illinois Accident Law

Illinois has a “statutes of limitations” that set a certain time line for the right of someone to bring a lawsuit. These statutes do not apply to car insurance claims since they require you to make a claim within a reasonable time of the accident, which is typically within a matter of days or even a few weeks. This two-year timeline also applies to the damage to a vehicle or other property. You can file a wrongful death lawsuit against the person who caused the accident within one year. That time starts at the time of the victim’s death, not the time of the accident. The state follows a “comparative fault”, which is for a situation that more than one person is partially, or completely at fault for the accident. Since you can recover against any party that was more at-fault than you for personal injury lawsuit, your damages will be reduced by a percentage that goes along with your share of liability.
