The answer to this question depends on the state you are in. Each state has its own statute of limitations. You should contact an attorney in your area as soon as possible to discuss your options.
If you do not file your personal injury claim within the statute of limitations, you will lose your right to sue.
Injuries cost money, including time away from work, medical bills, and other complications. Before taking legal action or trying to negotiate a settlement on your own, you should talk to an attorney about your case. You can search LawInfo’s legal directory to find a local personal injury attorney to discuss the merits of your case. This one step can level the playing field, help you protect your rights, and put you in the best position for recovering the compensation that you deserve.
