On February 6, 2016, Governor Scott Walker signed legislation into law that made substantial changes to the statutes of limitations of auto accident related claims. This bill reduces the statute of limitations for under insured, uninsured and property damage claims as well as shortening the statute of limitations for wrongful death claims arising from an accident involving a motor vehicle.
This means that if you are a loved one are involved in an auto accident, the time you have to make a claim may be drastically reduced. Based on these new laws, it is more important than ever that you secure an experienced accident attorney to protect your rights and make sure that your case is handled in a timely manner. Below, we have listed a brief overview of these changes.

Bodily Injury Claim (non-death) NO CHANGE
