If your claim is not started before the statute of limitations ends, you may be forever prevented from bringing your claim against the responsible party or parties. There is no way for us to know which statute of limitations applies to your case without first reviewing the individual facts of your case. You should not wait, as any delay may prevent you from bringing your lawsuit.
