What is the time limit for filing a Michigan car accident lawsuit?

In Michigan, a person injured in a car accident must generally file a lawsuit within three years of the date of the accident under the statute of limitations. This time frame is different for uninsured motorists cases and is typically much shorter.

It is important to contact an experienced Michigan car accident attorney immediately after the accident to discuss your legal rights and determine if you have a case.

There is also a time limit for filing a lawsuit against your insurance company. If your insurance company refuses to pay your No-Fault insurance benefits, you must file a lawsuit within one year of the date on which the last unpaid No-Fault benefit was incurred. If you fail to file your lawsuit within this one year period, you will lose the right to have the benefit or expense paid.
