In personal injury cases, this time period is usually three years from the date of the accident unless the victim is a minor or under a disability. In cases involving death, the time period is usually two years from the date of death.
There are exceptions to these general rules so contact our attorneys as soon as possible so all deadlines can be met.

Do I Have a Case?
When our firm takes your case, not only are we showing that you have been injured but our attorneys must also establish, through credible and relevant evidence, that the other party is responsible or legally liable for your injuries. As a result, we put a lot of work into investigating the circumstances of your injury.
Most personal injury cases are filed under the theory of negligence, meaning that there was a failure to exercise reasonable care to protect another from harm. In order to recover proper compensation, your attorney must provide a clear picture of failure on someone else’s part to act reasonably when it comes to being careful and cautious.
For example, did a tire manufacturer act with the amount of care needed when producing a tire for an automobile? If they were negligent in any phase of the product’s development, and the driver of a car suffered an injury after a blowout, an attorney could prove that the driver was owed damages for their losses in a product liability suit. If someone crossing the street is hit by a vehicle and injured, your attorney would work to prove that the driver of the vehicle was negligent while driving.
