Other than the legal constraints that require an injured individual to file a claim within the statute of limitations or otherwise face their claim becoming invalid, there aren't set rules regarding when a person must file an injury claim. However, it may be beneficial for an injured claimant to file their personal injury lawsuit as quickly as possible. This can provide the claimant and their legal counsel with an opportunity to obtain evidence soon after the incident, as well as cut down on the amount of time a defendant, namely including insurance companies, may have to plan their defense.
If you're thinking about filing a personal injury lawsuit against the person or group responsible for your injuries, a lawyer from Law Offices of Paul Levin can help you understand your legal options and may be able to represent you.
