my daughter was struck by a car when she was 15 (8/30/2008). She will turn 20 at the end of the month and wishes to pursue a claim against the driver. We are in NJ, when does that Statute expire, when she turns 20 or in August?

It would expire on 8/29/2010, but since she was a minor at the time, it gets extended to expire 2 years after she she turns 18 - so in short, when she turns 20 at the end of the month. You should contact an attorney soon

I am sorry to have learned of your daughter's accident. She would have until her 20th birthday to file a claim. Accordingly, time is obviously very short. My firm has handled thousands of vehicular cases. Please call us as soon as possible for a no cost consultation (973)635-5400. We will assist you in whatever way we can.
