On Alert - Change to the Uninsured Motorist Statute of Limitations
Governor Scott Walker has signed a bill that changes the statute of limitations for Uninsured Motorist Claims (UM). The statute of limitations is being changed to 3 years effective February 6, 2016. Before this change, UM claims were guided by the rules of contract. A claim could be brought on a contract for 6 years after the claim arose. This change requires the injured person to seek legal counsel sooner after an injury than previously allowed.
