What does this mean? If your lawsuit is timely, it means that there are definite time limits to file a lawsuit. These time limits regarding lawsuits are known as statutes of limitations. For example, some claims might actually expire as quickly as one year after the event, while others are still available for as long as 25 years, based on the state’s statute of limitations.
