What is the statute of limitations for car accident cases in Michigan?

The statute of limitations is the time period that a person must file a lawsuit at the courthouse after an accident.  It sets the deadline for filing claims.  In general, a lawsuit against a negligent driver in a car accident must file suit within three years of the date of the accident.  The time frame for filing no-fault insurance claims and uninsured motorist claims is usually one year.  There are some exceptions to these time limits but it is important to contact our office as soon as possible so that your deadline does not pass.
