When do I need to file a personal injury claim?
Although many people may want to take some time to consider their full range of legal options, the law requires that claimants file a lawsuit within a certain amount of time after an injury. For most personal injury claims, a claimant has up to two years from when they were injured to pursue legal action. This may be extended if a person doesn’t initially realize they were injured, as may be the case with internal injuries, or if the person injured was a child at the time of the injury.
