We’ll provide you with all of the key information you’ll need regarding lawsuits and settlements. We know how important it is to receive full compensation for the losses you’ve suffered and we hope this information will be helpful.
Know Your Timeline
The majority of states have a statute of limitations law in place which states that all civil claims must be filed within two or three years of when the incident occurred. This means you’ll have a limited time from the date of the accident to gather information, hire an attorney, give your attorney proper time to investigate your case, and file a claim.
While the deadline varies by state, courts are strict on their deadline, and if you don’t file in time, the courts won’t hear your case and you won’t receive compensation. While the statute of limitations can move up if you were diagnosed with an injury after the accident, it’s still in your best interest not to delay your case. Giving your lawyer ample time to maximize your claim value is a smart move.
While you may be hesitant at first as to whether you want to file a claim, seeking justice through the court system will leave you with clarity and confidence. The many articles on our website can help answer any questions you might have and ease some of your concerns as you prepare your case.
Some of the topics we’ll discuss on our site include federal and state laws, the settlement process inside and outside the courtroom, different types of personal injury, and how to find the best lawyer for your case.
It can be overwhelming to go through the civil claims process, but fighting for the compensation you deserve is worth the time and effort. Let us be your free, one-stop guide to finding all of the information you need to succeed.
