What is the statute of limitations for a mass tort case?
Each state imposes its own statute of limitations for mass tort cases. These laws limit the amount of time you have to file a mass tort case. The general range of time frames across the country is between two and three years from the injury.
However, sometimes, plaintiffs do not immediately discover an injury or illness. So, some states extend the statute of limitations by giving the injured individual time to file a mass tort lawsuit after discovering the damage.
