The Tolling Agreements permits parties to resume negotiating a settlement after the expiration of a statutory time limit. With this agreement, the claimant and the respondent agree to "toll" a time-based statute that may be running on a claim. For most requests, it is likely to apply a "statute of limitations." This is a law which says that you have to bring a legal action within a certain amount of time.
The best example of using this document is a car accident where another driver hits someone, and the person being hit is the claimant, because they would have the claim. The person that hit them would be the respondent. If they'd like to keep working on it and not worry about needing to file a case, they may sign a Tolling Agreement.
In these types of situations, generally, the claimant is the one who would be more concerned about the statute of limitations running, because the claimant is the one that would lose their right to bring the case in a court of law.
A document should be filled out before the statute of limitations has run; otherwise, it won't be significant.
You fill out a form. The document is created before your eyes as you respond to the questions.
At the end, you receive it in Word and PDF formats. You can modify it and reuse it.
This document would ideally be used before litigation is begun in a potential claim between two parties.
This document is quite straightforward as it only consists of the identities of the parties, as well as the details of the claim and the tolling date. Other than that, most of the form is already drafted.
A completed document should be printed and signed by both parties. We recommend keeping copies in case any future disputes arise.
Either individual state or federal laws cover Tolling Agreements, depending on what particular claim is being tolled. This agreement allows the parties to choose by which state's law they wish to govern the agreement.
