Maryland Statutes of Limitations
Created by FindLaw's team of legal writers and editors | Last reviewed June 20, 2016
When civil cases, such as lawsuits, are filed in Maryland, the state’s statute of limitations provides the deadline for when a suit must be filed. For criminal charges, the statute of limitations prohibits prosecutors from charging for the commission of a crime after the passage of a specified number of years. Each state has different statutes of limitations for various types of civil actions and crimes. For instance, there is a one-year time limit to bring an “injury to person” case, but a three-year limit to sue for “injury to personal property.” Click on the links below for more on Maryland's statutes of limitations.
