The following actions shall be commenced within 3 years or be barred:
(1) An action to recover damages for injuries to the person.
(2) An action brought to recover damages for death caused by the wrongful act, neglect or default of another. Wis. Stat. Ann. § 893.54
The discovery rule established that a tort claim accrues for the purposes of the statute of limitations “on the date the injury is discovered or with reasonable diligence should be discovered, whichever occurs first.” Hansen, 113 Wis.2d at 560, 335 N.W.2d 578. The Hansen court declared that “[i]t is manifestly unjust for the statute of limitations to begin to run before a claimant could reasonably become aware of the injury.” Hansen, 113 Wis.2d at 559, 335 N.W.2d 578.
