There are a number of terms used in personal injury law that may be confusing to persons unfamiliar with the practice of law. One such example is the “statute of limitations.” If you have suffered an injury in an accident as a result of another party’s negligence, it is important to ensure that you are properly advised of your legal rights and options. Failure to proceed in a timely manner can cause you to be unable to recover financial compensation for your injuries. We can advise you if the statute of limitations in Oklahoma has expired for your case.

    Statute of Limitations Specifics

    The statute of limitations specifies how long a plaintiff has to file a lawsuit against another party to hold them liable for harm that resulted from some breach of duty. In the state of Oklahoma, the statute of limitations gives people a two-year window to file the following types of cases:

    • Personal injury
    • Wrongful death
    • Product liability

    For intentional torts, a lawsuit must be filed within one year rather than two.
