Maine Revised Statutes

§3-109. Statutes of limitation on decedent's cause of action

No statute of limitation running on a cause of action belonging to a decedent which had not been barred as of the date of his death, shall apply to bar a cause of action surviving the decedent's death sooner than 4 months after death. A cause of action which, but for this section, would have been barred less than 4 months after death, is barred after 4 months unless tolled. [1979, c. 540, §1 (NEW).]
