A “statute of limitation” (SOL) is a law that sets a time limit on legal action. After the statute has expired, legal action (a lawsuit) may not take place.
Three Years with Exceptions
In Washington State, the SOL for most motor vehicle collision cases is three (3) years from the date of the motor vehicle collision. However there are exceptions to the statute of limitation period. You will want to consult with an experienced attorney to make sure you know when the statute expires in your case.
