Deadline to File

Is there a deadline to file a lawsuit after an accident?

Is there a deadline to file suit? Absolutely!

It's a myth that in some cases there's no deadline. In every state in the Union, if you get injured in an accident, there's a certain amount of time called the Statute of Limitations, that you have to file a lawsuit and if you don't file a lawsuit by that deadline, you are forever barred from collecting money damages.

If you've been in an accident, it depends on what type of accident it was, where you were and how the injury has affected you, as to when the potential Statute of Limitations will be.

You need to call a lawyer and ask them that question. Don't rely on Dr. Google. You could make a serious mistake. Call a local lawyer and ask them how long you have to file suit depending on the facts of your case.
