List of State Statutes of Limitations for Dog Bite Cases

These are the general statutes of limitations for dog bite cases where the victim is a human being who survived. Other types of cases (such as death cases, motor vehicle accidents, and cases where a dog was bitten by another dog) may have different limits. There usually are different limits for injured children or claims against the government (for example, claims against the animal control department). Therefore, always start a case as soon as possible, and if some time has gone by, always get a lawyer before deciding whether you still have time to start.
