Statute of Limitations in New Jersey
The statute of limitations in New Jersey is, in most cases, two years, which is why it is your duty to ensure that you do not wait any longer than two years from the date of your accident to sue the liable party. In certain cases where an individual is injured on government property or property owned by a municipality, they will have significantly less time to file a Notice of Claim against that entity–usually a matter of months. The bottom line is that the sooner you file your claim, the better off you will be.
