Hello and welcome to JustAnswer. Thank you for requesting the I assist you with your question today.
I apologize for the delay in responding to your question, I had to take a short break.
You should be away that you may be able to bring several causes of action from a single incident of wrongful conduct. So even if it appears that the relevant statute of limitations
has run it may remain possible to bring a different claim. Also, there may be an exception to the limitations period that applies to your situation.
Under the statute of limitation an action must be filed within a set time from the date of the act or omission resulting in injury, or that same period from the date the injury was or reasonably should have been discovered, whichever is later. The analysis to determine which date to use is fact specific to each case. Many times which date to use is in dispute and is ultimately decided by the court. It is up to the defendant to raise the issue of statute of limitations as a defense.
You captioned your question as "Identifying causes of action." You have provided very little factual background so it is difficult to identify any cause of action. If you want to disclose more facts I may be able to provide you with more information. Please keep in mind that this forum is not confidential and upon to the public. Also there is not attorney-client privilege
. You may be want to consider contacting an attorney and arrange to have a private confidential meeting so they can evaluate and advise you as to your options. Again if you provide more details I may be able to provide with more relevant information to consider.
I hope that I have answered your question. Please let me know if you have more questions or need more information.
