How soon after I am injured do I have to file a lawsuit?
Every state has certain time limits, called “statutes of limitations,” which govern the amount of time you have to file a personal injury lawsuit.
In some states, you may have as little as one year to file a lawsuit arising out of an automobile accident.
If you miss the deadline for filing your case, you may lose your legal right to damages for your injury.
Consequently, it is important to talk with a lawyer as soon as you suffer or discover an injury.

OUR ADVICE TO YOU:
It’s often the case that the outcome of an accident or injury claim can hinge on the smallest of details. While it may seem appealing to try to handle a case on your own, it’s rare that acting independently of a lawyer will yield the best results for the plaintiff. Therefore, whilst we encourage you to read the useful articles at our website, we strongly recommend that you seek sound legal advice before attempting to deal with any type of accident or injury claim on your own.
