Statutes of limitation; accrual. Provides that in civil actions to recover for damage to property or injury to person, if the injury was not reasonably discoverable on the date it was sustained, the statute of limitations does not begin to run until the date that injury was discovered or should have been discovered. Under current law, in most cases the limitations period begins to run from the date the injury was sustained. No change is made to the law governing limitations periods in medical malpractice cases.
