How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Claim in Mississippi?
How long an injured individual has to file a personal injury claim is determined by a law called the statute of limitations. According to the Mississippi Code § 15-1-49, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases in the state of Mississippi is three years.
This means you have three years from the date your injury was inflicted to file a claim, or you will almost certainly lose your right to do so, along with your right to pursue compensation.
However, it’s important to note that exceptions exist that can change this time limit, so it’s crucial you speak to an experienced Jackson personal injury attorney about the specifics of your case as soon as possible.
