Statutes of Limitation – Minors Tolling Statute

With few exceptions in Pennsylvania, adults must file suits within two years of an accident. But where a child is the victim, the law extends the time for filing until the age of 18. The law provides an opportunity to the children of Pennsylvania a two year period from their age of adulthood, eighteen, to pursue legal wrongs. Nevertheless, it is still important for parents to contact counsel early so that a child’s rights may be best preserved.
