WHY ARE STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS IMPORTANT IN PERSONAL INJURY CASES?

Statute of limitations are crucial because they help to ensure that cases are brought to court in a timely manner. This helps to ensure that the facts of the case stay correct as evidence can deteriorate over time and memories can fade. They also provide a sense of finality to legal disputes and they protect defendants from being sued for events that occurred many years ago where they might not have access to evidence or witnesses necessary to defend themselves anymore.
