The laws of each state put a time limit on when you can bring a lawsuit, called Statutes of Limitations. In the case of personal injury lawsuits, the type of injury, the age of the injured party, as well as the state in which the injury occurred are important factors used to determine the length of time you have to start a lawsuit.
If you don't start your lawsuit before the state's deadline, you will lose your right to sue and recover money damages for your injuries.
If you've been injured in any type of accident, or are the victim of medical malpractice, it is important to contact a lawyer as soon as possible. If you wait, evidence that might help you prove your case could be lost or even destroyed.
As most personal injury lawyers provide a free consultation and only get paid if they win your case, there is no reason not to contact a lawyer to find out if you have a good case.
