Insurance 101 – Chapter 9 – Volume 41 – Equitable Tolling

Equitable Tolling

Courts are loathe to deprive a party of his or her right to a day in court. If, by applying the equitable principles of fairness, it is unjust to apply the statute of limitations or a private limitations of action provision, a court will toll the statute or provision. For example, the courts will not enforce the limitation provision for actions that establish waiver or require estoppel.
