Ohio Statutes of Limitations
Created by FindLaw's team of legal writers and editors | Last reviewed June 20, 2016
Statutes of limitations define the time period in which a lawsuit or other civil action must be filed, as measured from the date of the incident. Statutes of limitations also apply to criminal cases, prohibiting prosecutors from filing criminal after the passage of a specified number of years. Different states have different statutes of limitations for various types of civil actions and crimes, and Ohio is no different. For instance, Ohio has a four-year time limit to bring fraud cases, but a one-year statute of limitations for personal injuries.
