There is a time limit on how long a person is allowed to wait before they file a lawsuit against their insurance company. This limit, known as the statute of limitations, changes on a state-to-state basis and in some cases on a policy by policy basis. Very generally, most states operate on a two-year statute of limitations for insurance bad faith claims. However, depending on where you’re filing your claim, there may be different rules specifically for your claim.
