The Statute of Limitations (the period in which you have a legal right to bring a lawsuit against someone) is what an attorney can advise you on. No matter how good your case is, if you don't bring an action in time, you are out of luck. Normally, it is 4 years in a situation such as yours. But, I'm with those who recommend seeing an attorney ASAP to see what the period of time is that you have. THEN you can decide what course of action to take. First get the legal information, then try to resolve it without having to go the legal route if you have the time. My husband is an attorney and he has always recommended trying to resolve an issue before you sue. Sueing should be a last resort. Good luck. And if you are willing, I would love to know how you resolved the issue.
