How long do I have to file an accident case?

There are various statutes of limitation in Kentucky. The statute of limitation is the time in which you have to file a lawsuit. Typically, you have one year from the date of your accident to file a lawsuit. However, sometimes you don't know that you have been injured or hurt. Kentucky has what they call the discovery rule. That tolls your statute of limitations from one year until the date in which you knew or should have known not only that you have been hurt, but the person that has hurt you. Additionally, sometimes a minor may be hurt. The statute of limitations is either tolled or suspended until that child reaches the age of 18, and begins to run at that time.
