Maine Statute of Limitations
Maine has a “statutes of limitations” that set a certain time line for the right of someone to bring a lawsuit. The statutes states that a person has six years to file for personal injury or property damage caused by another person from the date of the accident. You can file a wrongful death lawsuit against the person who caused the accident within two years. That time starts at the time of the victim’s death, not the time of the accident. 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. The state follows a “modified 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.
