• How long do I have to file a claim?
    There are two reasons to hire an attorney quickly:

    1. First, there can be statutes of limitations that apply, and sometimes these can be much shorter than you think. (In some cases, as short as 90 days!)

    2. In many cases of personal injury, the defense often starts building their case immediately. The longer you wait to hire a lawyer and get YOUR specialists researching the accident scene, etc. the more of an advantage you give to the other side. Evidence gets erased from the scene of the accident. Witnesses start to forget details of what happened. If you're going to pursue legal action, you need to get an attorney hired as quickly as you can. (You DO still need to make a good decision and hire the right one!) Return to question section
