If you are curious as to how long after a drunk driving accident you have to file a lawsuit for your injuries, this article is for you. Please, read on.
Typically, the statute of limitations for filing any type of negligence action in the state of Illinois is two years. Sometimes, however, the statute of limitations is only one year. Situations like that occur if the person driving is, for example, a governmental worker. Due to the variant nature of statute of limitations, you will want to have an experienced and knowledgeable counsel on your side. You need to work closely with your attorney to insure that the statute of limitation is met or your case will be forever barred in a court of law.
