What Are The Steps Involved In Filing A Personal Injury Claim?

What are the steps involved in filing a personal injury claim? The normal time limit for filing a personal injury claim is two years from the date of the accident. Do not try to file a claim yourself. That is the attorney's job. Shop around for your attorney, and make sure you find one that you trust.

It is very important to know the time limit for filing a claim. The legal time limit for filing most personal injury lawsuits due to a car accident is two years from the date of the accident. That means you must file within two years of the accident or else your claim may be time barred. However, please do not rely on this article to figure out your time limits and do not wait until your legal time limit is close to expiring before contacting an attorney. Please call an attorney to determine the legal time limit on your claim.


If I have a claim, would you recommend I look around for various attorneys?




Yes, if you need to. Different attorneys have different standards. The reason for this is that they invest their own money. It's risk benefit like anything else. I'm going to invest my own money into your case because I really like the odds of your case paying off. You always want an attorney invested and personally involved in your case.

If you get an attorney who says that you don't have a claim, have them explain to you why. He should be pretty clear on the reasons why. If you cannot understand what he tells you, call another attorney for another explanation until you do. Some attorneys only work the big million dollar cases. If you run into this, keep calling around. You want a hungry attorney who is going to work hard for you.
