What is limitation for bringing a civil suit under the same circumstances
Lawyer: LegalKnowledge, Attorney replied 7 months ago

Claims must be brought within three years "from the time the right to maintain the action accrues." If the victim is a minor when the injury occurs, he or she may bring the action within three years of his or her eighteenth birthday.
