FAQ: What is the Statute of Limitations for Dog Bite Claims?

A dog bite is a type of personal injury claim, therefore, the statute of limitations for a dog bite is two years from the date of the injury.

However, in a case involving a minor, the statute of limitations is a bit different. The statute of limitations for the minor’s medical bills is two years from the date of the injury; however, the statute of limitations for the minor child’s pain and suffering, mental anguish, etc is two years from their 18th birthday.
