Is there a Time Limit on Filing my Personal Injury Claim?
YES. The Statute of Limitations restricts the amount of time you have to file a claim. Typically, accident cases allow you to file your claim within three (3) years from the date of the accident. Some cases, though, including those involving death, may have a shorter filing period. Therefore, it is unwise to delay investigation and analysis of your claim; an attorney may help you accomplish the same. If you fail to file your claim in timely fashion, IT WILL BE FOREVER BARRED.

MOREOVER, if your claim is against any sort of governmental entity, the time within which you must file your claim may be as short as two (2) years, or less in some instances. IN ADDITION, you may be required to provide the governmental entity with NOTICE of your claim within thirty (30) days from the date of the accident.

The bottom line is that while you may have ample time within which to file a claim, you want to be absolutely sure that you comply with any and all notice and filing deadlines, and investigation is often a necessary prerequisite. You want to be sure, then, that you thoroughly investigate any filing and notice deadlines as soon as possible.
