Good evening. It would be two years and I have provided the statute below, support the same.
§ 5524. Two year limitation. The following actions and proceedings must be commenced within two years: (1) An action for assault, battery, false imprisonment, false arrest, malicious prosecution or malicious abuse of process. (2) An action to recover damages for injuries to the person or for the death of an individual caused by the wrongful act or neglect or unlawful violence or negligence of another. (3) An action for taking, detaining or injuring personal property, including actions for specific recovery thereof. (4) An action for waste or trespass of real property. (5) An action upon a statute for a civil penalty or forfeiture. (6) An action against any officer of any government unit for the nonpayment of money or the nondelivery of property collected upon on execution or otherwise in his possession. (7) Any other action or proceeding to recover damages for injury to person or property which is founded on negligent, intentional, or otherwise tortious conduct or any other action or proceeding sounding in trespass, including deceit or fraud, except an action or proceeding subject to another limitation specified in this subchapter.
You asked what the statute of limitations was and it is 2 years
This was your question....What is the statute of limitations for them to do so.
I am happy to answer anything else you would like to know but this was the only question posted, so please let me know
Sorry for the delay. The settlement would not extend the time. As I shared, the time starts to run from when the claim was filed so unless there was language in the settlement that extended that time frame, it would not benefit them from taking time to settle .
