1. Objectivity

A personal injury can be a traumatizing and emotional event. You may be rattled and it can be difficult for you to maintain objectivity when dealing with big insurance companies.

An attorney can help alleviate this.

2. They Know How to Negotiate

After an accident has occurred, and personal injury claims have been filed, the offending party’s insurance representative handles these cases daily and can be very persuasive when it comes to bargaining for lower compensation. Negotiating with insurance companies can be very challenging and they have techniques on persuading you to accept their first offer. This is why you need an experienced lawyer to help you through this period. Hiring a personal injury lawyer after you’ve been injured often leads to heftier compensation.

3. Make sure you see a Doctor

When you are injured due to another’s negligence, it is important that you seek medical care as soon as possible. If you are injured and need to see a medical specialist, given our experience and large network, we can help assure that you get to the right doctors.

What are the statute of limitations for Accidents?

The statute of limitations bars a claim after a certain period of time has passed. When the statute of limitations begins, the clock starts ticking from the time of the injury or when the plaintiff should have reasonably known of the injury or property damage.

While some states have their own specific exceptions created by statute or contract, there are universal exceptions that can toll the statute of limitations and extend the filing date beyond the statutory period

Depending on where an accident occurred (and, most importantly, with whom), the statute of limitations might be shortened dramatically. Here is an overview

A statute of limitation specifies how long you have to bring a lawsuit against someone for harming you

Generally, from 1-6 years, most commonly 2 years. Starts from the time you were injured. Varies by:

  • Your State
  • Your type of claim
  • The time range can lengthen (or shorten) with a few exceptions.
  • Court rulings can also affect how the statute is interpreted
