Each state has its own rules regarding how long individuals have to file suit, once they have been harmed or an event occurs that gives rise to a claim. The same time limits (“statutes of limitation”) apply to small claims courts as to other courts. Generally, they have at least one year from the injury or event (or its discovery, in some cases) to file their suit.
