Personal Injury Claims in North Dakota and Minnesota
When you are injured due to no fault of your own, you can sue the negligent
person or company who caused your injury for damages. However, this can
be a long and difficult process, filled with complex legal jargon and
procedures. Not to mention that you are likely nursing painful injuries
on top of dealing with insurance claims and legal paperwork. It’s

How Long Do You Have To File Your Claim?
According to the 28, Ch. 1, Secs. 28-01-16 and 28-01-18 of the North Dakota
Code, injury victims have 6 years to file a personal injury claim before
the statute of limitations runs out.
The statute of limitations is a law that determines how long a claimant
has to file a claim and in turn pursue compensation before they lose their
legal right to do so. It is important to note that depending on the specifics
of your case, this 6-year timeline may be extended or shortened.
For example, a claim concerning an injury has a statute of limitations
of 6 years, however in North Dakota a claim concerning a wrongful death
has a statute of limitations of only 2 years. This is why it is important
to speak to an attorney from our firm as soon as possible about your case.
