Q What is a statute of limitations and why do we have them in your car accident case in Norwich, Connecticut?

Why would there be such a rule? The policy behind a rule is to put a final deadline on the right to sue so the parties involved can move on with certainty that no litigation will ever occur after the deadline has past.
