What Is the Washington Personal Injury Statute of Limitations?

A statute of limitations is a limit that each state puts on how long a victim has to file their personal injury lawsuit after being injured. Statute of limitations generally varies from state to state, so it's important to be familiar with the laws for Washington when pursuing your claim.

Washington Rev. Code § 4.16.080(2) (2016) states that the injured party is allowed to file a personal injury lawsuit for up to 3 years following the date of their injury. Failure to file your lawsuit within the allotted time-frame can result in having your case thrown out.
