1
How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury
Claim in New Jersey?
If you have been injured in any kind of accident
that was caused by another partys reckless
actions, you may be considering filing a personal
injury claim in order to recover the costs
associated with your accident. However, it is
important to be aware about the time limit on how
long you have to file a personal injury claim in
New Jersey.
2
Statute of Limitations in New Jersey
The time limit on filing a personal injury claim
identifies by the statute of limitations law.
There are different statutes of limitations
depending on which state you live in and which
type of claim you have. In some jurisdictions,
the time limit begins running just after the
injury occurs, while others allow the time to
begin running after the person becomes aware of
the injury, which may not be for some time.

Medical Malpractice Statute of Limitations in New
Jersey
Statute of Limitations in New Jersey has a
special time limit for medical malpractice
claims. Unlike regular personal injury claims,
which must be filed within two years of the date
of the injury, the medical malpractice claims can
also be filed up to two years after the
malpractice was discovered or should have been
discovered.
4
Wrongful Death Claims
Wrongful death claims are also a type of personal
injury claim. The statute of limitations in New
Jersey for wrongful death claims is 2 years from
the date of death. However, all claims related to
the injury itself rather than the death must
be filed within the normal personal injury
statute of limitations, which is 2 years from the
date of injury. In other words, a claim for
suffering and pain damages related to the injury
would fall under the regular limitation.
5
Birth Injury
Birth injuries are also a form of personal
injuries. The legislature has set aside a
specific time limits rule for these types of
claims. Injured persons born before July 2004,
have 2 years from their 18th birthday to file a
personal injury claim that was related to their
birth. Minors born after July 2004 have only
until their 13th birthday to file such kind of
claim.
