We are often asked what the statute of limitations are for a personal injury claim. Our lawyers recommend that you contact a personal injury attorney immediately after sustaining an injury, and not delaying your claim if you think you have been injured.  The longer an individual waits, the harder it may be to win the claim. Below are the statutes of limitations for each type of personal injury case, though there could be exceptions and differences depending on the case.

Missouri Statutes of Limitations 

  • Injury on Property: 5 years
  • Auto Accident: 5 years
  • Product Injury: 5 years
  • Medical malpractice: 2 years (can vary)
  • Wrongful death: 3 years
  • Environmental & toxins: 5 years
  • Railroad Injury:  3 years
  • Aviation: 5 years
  • Contract: 10 years
  • Workers’ compensation: 2 years (can vary)
