Hello Aurie,My name isXXXXX a licensed attorney. Glad to try and help out.Sure sorry for the circumstances, truly. My heart goes out to you.Accordingly, I will speak candidly rather than doing you the disservice of lying or misleading you. I didn't enact the law, and personally I often disagree with it, but nevertheless we're all stuck with it. I just wouldn't do you the disservice of lying or misleading you. So, here's the truth.Pursuant to Oregon Revised Statutes §12.080, your claim is time-barred. The limitations period for filing such a cause of action is six years from the date of the occurrence.I am sorry.If you have a follow-up question or need clarification, please just say the word by using "reply" to reach me.I truly hope all works out for you.Take care,Ben, J.D.
I understand that damage to personal property has a six year SOL, but I beleive this is damage to real property since the irrigation system is buried under the surface of the land. Does a ten year SOL apply?
