What Is the Statute of Limitations For Filing a Personal Injury Claim?

If you've been injured and wish to file a claim against the negligent party, you must file your claim within the Montana statute of limitations. You have three years from the date the injury occurred during which to file your personal injury lawsuit. If you miss this deadline it's possible your case will never be heard by the court.

What If I'm Partially to Blame for My Injury?

Even if you are partially at fault for the accident that caused your injury, you are still able to pursue compensation under Montana's shared fault laws. Simply stated, the comparative fault rule allows the plaintiff to receive compensation if they are less than 50% at fault for the accident. For example, if you were involved in a car accident where you were rear-ended but were also texting, the defendant could argue that you share fault for the accident. The court will need to determine at what percentage you are at fault, and will then deduct that percentage from the total compensation. If you were awarded $10,000, but were ruled 20% at fault, then you would only receive $8,000 in total recovery. If you are judged to be more than 50% at fault, you cannot collect any damages at all.
