Statutes Of Limitations

1042019_agenda Nevada’s Limitation of Actions statute is found at N.R.S. 11.190.  Normally the statutes are as follows:

Bodily Injury:  2 years.
Property Damage:  3 years.
Contract (including UM/UIM):  6 years.  In UM/UIM cases statute does not begin to run until date of denial of coverage. Grayson v. State Farm Mutual Automobile Insurance, 114 Nev. 1379; 971 P.2d 798 (1998).

An interesting contrast is that with subrogation cases; the statute runs from date of loss. State Farm v. Wharton, 88 Nev. 183, 495 P.2d 359 (1972).
