Statutes of Limitation for Car, Truck, and Motorcycle Accidents in Massachusetts.

Brabant & Huynh, LLP

Author: Joshua Brabant

Car accident victims ask us this question all of the time: How long do I have to sue? For a Massachusetts car, truck, or motorcycle accident, the following general rules apply:

You have three years from the date of a negligently-caused automobile accident in which to sue the responsible driver(s) for your personal injuries. See MGL c. 260, sec. 2A. If you are contemplating suit against your own uninsured or underinsured motorist carrier, the six-year limitations period for written contracts applies. See Royal Globe Ins. Co. v. Craven, 411 Mass. 629, 636-39.

When and why your limitations period runs depends on the facts. You’ve probably heard it before; seek professional help.If you need help with this or any other accident related issues please call the car accident attorneys at Brabant & Huynh LLP at 617-934-0913 for your personal injury where we are located at Quincy and Dorchester and we will be glad to help you evaluate your case and ease the burden of going through the process.
