When is it too late to file a personal injury lawsuit?
If you’ve been injured by another due to their negligent or wrongful conduct, whether in an automobile accident, trucking accident, car crash, motorcycle accident, etc., you must file a lawsuit before the statute of limitations expires. If your lawsuit is not filed before the statute of limitations expires, you lose the right to sue to recover compensation for the harm you suffered. Each state has its own statute of limitations and different types of harmful conduct may be governed by a different statute of limitation. For example, a claim arising out of medical malpractice may have a shorter statute of limitation than a claim arising out of a car crash and a claim against a government entity for negligence typically has a shorter statute of limitations than a claim not involving a government entity or a government employee.
If you’ve been injured by the negligence of another, you should consult with a personal injury attorney to find out how much time you have before your right to sue is lost. A personal injury attorney can help you protect your rights, help you recover fair and adequate compensation for your losses and help you steer through the legal maze while you focus on getting better.
