Personal injury is an area of law that focuses on protecting the rights of victims of negligence. When a person, business or other responsible entity acts wrongfully and causes harm, the victim deserves reimbursement. On the other hand, where there’s been no wrongful conduct, unfortunate individuals should not be able to pass the costs of their misfortune onto innocent business people and property owners.

Oregon Statute Of Limitations For Personal Injury Claims
The statute of limitations sets the time period for people to take legal action on a particular type of claim. Once that time is up, the claimant, generally, loses legal rights forever. Here is some of what you need to know about Oregon’s statute of limitations for personal injury claims:
- The applicable period is generally two years.
- If a government entity is going to be the defendant, a claimant must provide proper and timely notice of the claim to the entity; generally within 180 days of the injury event.
- In most injury cases a 10-year statute of ultimate repose will also apply. However, some types of products have different statutes of repose.
- If the victim is a child, the statute of limitations is often extended, but there are nuances and exceptions.
The law can be complicated and confusing. Retaining an experienced attorney assures that your rights are protected.
