How long after a drunk driving accident can I bring a lawsuit for my injuries?

You have up to four years in order to bring a lawsuit against a drunk driver. However, and this is very important, if somebody was killed in that crash, then it becomes what’s called a wrongful death case, and the statute of limitations for wrongful death case is only two years. Once that two years goes by, that case is over and it can never be brought, so if somebody was killed, two years. If somebody was not killed, then you have as much as four years
