Statute of Limitations for Filing

If you suffer personal injury from an accident, you must file your lawsuit before the applicable deadline, known as the "statute of limitations," passes or your claim will be forever barred. It is therefore of the utmost importance that if you have suffered a personal injury and you believe someone else is responsible for causing  that injury, that you immediately consult with an attorney.


EACH STATE HAS THEIR OWN STATUTE OF LIMITATIONS 


The specific time limitation will depend on the type of injury and the circumstances. As a general rule, a personal injury lawsuit must be filed within one year of the date the injury occurred. In some states new laws have extended the deadline for filing to two  years. However, under some circumstances, you must take action in less than a year.


For example, if you believe a governmental entity is responsible for causing your injury, you must file a claim within six  months of the injury.  Similarly, there are other and shortened time limitations if you need to sue a doctor for medical malpractice.


If you wait until near the end of the period to file a claim or lawsuit, your attorney may not have enough time left before the deadline to help you. If you have suffered a personal injury, it is essential that you immediately consult with an LAWYER.


CONTACT A LAWYER
