    Answered . Without more infornation it is difficult to answser your question because there are different statute of limitations depending who is a fault and what type of fault (negligence) you are talking about. Medical malpractice is one statute..( 1 year after discovery or three years...if the person (entity) at fault is a public/governmental entity (within six months have to make a claim with the entity, then meet the other regular statute of limitations), if you are talking about just general negligence such as when someone negligently creates a hazardous situation which injured your child, or rear end accident ( two years). You should consult with a local attorney to obtain more fact specific legal advice. I hope this was helpful.
