Hello, My name is ***** ***** I will assist you today. Please give me a few minutes to write a response and identify any additional resources for you.
I do not participate in the forum's phone call service (you can post a request for our "Premium Service" and your request will go to experts that do participate in that service, and they will contact you with additional information and the fee for a phone call). But I did notice that your post has been pending for some time, and I believe I can assist you on our "Q&A" forum.
The statute of limitations is "tolled" (Paused) for minors - so it does not start "accrue" until you reach the age of majority (18 in most states).
You do not provide the state in which you are living or plan to sue, so I do not have the detailed information for you appropriate to your state, but the tolling information is applied in all states. If you provide me with your state, I can provide you with more detailed information.
Customer, I am trying to type an answer for you
In DC the statute of limitations for minors is tolled until the age of 18. So it will start running on your 18th birthday.
You will need to sue the United States in district court (not small claims), and most claims are brought in federal court, or the Court of Federal Claims (the US Federal "small claims" court), see: http://www.uscfc.uscourts.gov/
Premises liability is a tort claim.
