The Statute of Limitations varies from state to state, but it’s usually between one to three years after the occurrence. Check nolo.com or lawfind.com for details on your state. Or, of course, any attorney or insurance professional doing business in your state would know.

A tenant of claims she hurt her ankle slipping on an uneven patch of sidewalk at my apartment. As a result, she says, she couldn?t work for a few weeks and therefore asked for a ?free? month, which I gave her.
Unfortunately I didn?t get her to sign a liability release. This was about 11 months ago.
Now she?s late with the rent and threatening to call the housing authority about this and that. In short she’s becoming the tenant from hell.
Needless to say I?m concerned that her ankle is going to start acting up and costing me more money. And since I didn’t report the initial claim to my insurance company (I didn’t have liability insurance then) I’m sure they won’t help me.
What is the statute of limitations on an injury like that?
How long do I have to keep worrying about a lawsuit?
