What is the time limit to file a small claims action against a business?

Question Details:

Our car was towed to an impound yard and when they let down the car off the tow hook it apparently slammed very hard on the ground and damaged the oil pan it was punctured and all the oil leaked out onto the pavement. We paid the impound charges and paid towing charges to a mechanic for repair and repair charges. We need to know the time limit to file a small claim for something like this?
