It is important to remember that there is a three-year “statute of limitations” (time limit imposed by law) for filing personal injury claims in Wisconsin. However, special rules apply if the responsible party for your injury is the State of Wisconsin or a municipality within the state.

If that is the case, you must file a claim with the responsible government entity within 120 days after the injury occurred. These time limits are among the reasons you should not delay in speaking with a Milwaukee neck and back injury attorney.
