On Alert - Change to the Uninsured Motorist Statute of Limitations

February 2016

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.

If you have questions regarding a UM claim or coverage in your policy for UM insurance, you can contact Herrick & Hart.  We have been helping the injured for over 60 years.  We look forward to serving you.
