The requirement of serving tort claims notice under the Indiana Tort Claims Act is also tolled for minors. Specifically, while a tort claim notice must be sent within 180 days (for claims against a political subdivision) or 270 days (for claims against the State) Ind. Code § 34-13-3, the clock does not begin to tick on a minor’s governmental tort claim notice until their 18th birthday. Upon reaching the age of 18, minors then have 180 days or 270 days to serve a tort claims notice. City of Indianapolis v. Hicks, 932 N.E.2d 227 (Ind. App. 2010).
