Oregon Statutes of Limitations
Created by FindLaw's team of legal writers and editors | Last reviewed June 20, 2016
For just about any legal case, from criminal prosecutions to personal injury lawsuits, there is a time limit before which a case can be filed in court. The Beaver State's statute of limitations laws define the time period in which a civil lawsuit must be filed and in which prosecutors must file criminal charges. The statutory “clock” generally starts ticking when the crime has been committed, or in civil cases, when the harm occurs or is discovered. The length of time in which to file a case will vary depending on the nature of the crime or the type of lawsuit.
