A statute of limitations can be "tolled" or suspended if the victim/plaintiff is mentally disabled; that is pursuant to the following statute:
78B-2-224. Disabilities -- Time tolled. A statute of limitations may not be applied to a person's ability to bring an action during a period in which the person is: (1) a minor; or (2) mentally incompetent.
But there is no tolling for physical disabilities, unfortunately.
The statute of limitations for personal injury is 4 years from the date of injury pursuant to 78B-2-307(3) . Also please see:
The statute of limitations is also tolled if the defendant is out of state, so that may be worth checking into.
