For instance, I suffered from a bad fall in a resort and had to go through therapy for half a year and can only file after therapy. What is the statute of limitation?
The statute of limitations, generally speaking, on personal injury cases, excluding medical malpractice, is 5 years in the state of Missouri. However, there are numerous exceptions, and also notice requirements for certain types of injury claims. It is critical that proper legal notice be given to the liable party or parties, usually by an attorney. Timing is a very important aspect of handling a personal injury claim, and waiting too long or not waiting long enough can significantly change the outcome of the claim, and the amount of compensation you will receive. In order to determine whether an exception applies, whether proper legal notice must be promptly given, and whether it is professionally advisable to continue waiting before settling or filing a case, more detail would be needed, because each case is highly unique and the exact facts are very important.

You should contact a personal injury attorney as soon as possible to more fully discuss your case. Most personal injury attorneys offer a free initial consultation so it should not cost you anything to talk to an attorney and determine what the statute of limitation for your case actually is and whether there are any other requirements.

The jurisdicition wherein the claim will be made will determine the "Statute of Limitations" applicable to your claim.

If the resort was outside the Unites States, then other factors will be involved. Do not delay getting advice from a competent trial attorney.
