Statute of Limitations for Personal Injuries not Extended for Discovery

A action for personal injuries brought by an estate is untimely, and the statute of limitations will not be extended by a period within which the decedent might not have known that her automobile accident injuries were serious enough to qualify for a full tort action, when the decedent’s lawyer had attempted to bring a full tort action in her name within the limitations period which was dismissed because of her death before the action was filed. Edwin Moyer, Executor of Betty Moyer Estate v. Matthew Conroy, 9 Fid.Rep.3d 223 (Berks Co. C.P. 2019), on appeal, 283 MDA 2019 (Super. Ct.).
