Is There A Time Limit?

Once an injury has occurred you have only a limited amount of time to take action. If you fail to do so, then your right to bring a claim may be lost forever.

There are both absolute time limits and practical limits. The absolute time limit is fixed by law and establishes the amount of time within which a legal claim for injury, generally a lawsuit, must be filed with the Court. This time limit is known as the Statute of Limitations, and varies depending on several factors, specifically the type of claim, who is bringing the claim, and who the claim is against.

Let's talk for a moment about the practical time limits.

The foundation of any case is the ability to prove the facts. While the injured person's testimony is important, the best proof often comes from independent witnesses who need to be interviewed as soon as possible after the accident, before their memories fade. It's equally important to promptly inspect the scene of the accident and to take the right photographs before changes are made. These "practical time limits" urge you to move forward with your case just as quickly as possible so that the evidence can be preserved and the case properly prepared well in advance of the statute of limitations deadline.

You can best protect your legal rights by knowing the exact "Statute of Limitations" which applies to your individual case. We will be glad to meet with you to discuss your case, and give you the exact time limits which apply.

Don't let the time run out!
