Donald L. Shaum and Nancy V. Shaum appeal the trial court’s grant of summary judgment to Progressive Engineering, Inc., and Dennis Gobble. The Shaums raise seven issues, which we consolidate and restate as whether the trial court erred by granting summary judgment and determining that the Shaums’ claim against Progressive and Gobble was filed outside of the statute of limitations.
Conclusion (slip op. at 8): We affirm the trial court’s grant of summary judgment to Progressive Engineering and Gobble.
Key Analysis (slip op. at 6, 7): For an action to accrue, it is not necessary that the full extent of the damage be known or even ascertainable, but only that some ascertainable damage has occurred . . . We hold that the two-year statute of limitations applies here as this is a claim for professional malpractice. Further, even if the six-year statute of limitations of Ind. Code § 34-11-2-7 applied, we conclude that the Shaums’ action against Progressive Engineering and Gobble was untimely . . . The Shaums should have known of the land dispute and discovered the survey error in 1997 when McClure constructed his residence on the disputed property.
