What is a "Statute of Limitations"?
The statute of limitations places a time limit on how long a person has to file a lawsuit, pursue a claim, or otherwise bring legal action due to wrongful conduct. Various civil actions will have different statutes of limitations. Even a single event can involve different time limitations to file a claim or lawsuit. Because of the different laws concerning statutes of limitations, you should contact our personal injury attorneys to discuss your case in more detail and find out whether you are entitledto collect compensation for your injuries, lost wages, medical bills, and pain and suffering.
What is my claim worth?
The amount of monetary compensation that you are entitled to collect after being injured varies greatly between cases and is based on several factors, including among other things:
- The age and health of the victim before the injury
- The extent of the injuries
- The amount of medical treatment needed
- The ability of the victim to recover fully from the injury and return to a similar lifestyle
- Whether the victim was required to miss work because of the injury
- The presence of emotional and physical pain and suffering
