This is something that everyone should know, but most people do not. If you are involved in an accident, how long do you have to settle your case?
For personal injury, you have two years from the date of the accident to either resolve your case or file a lawsuit.
For property damage, you have three years from the date of the accident to either resolve your case or file a lawsuit.
Now, this is just a general statement. There are some types of cases where different limitations apply. For example, if you want to sue a government entity and it is the state or county, you have to file a claim within 6 months of the incident occurring.
Always check with an attorney as soon as possible after an injury occurring event happens. You do not want to wait too long and miss an important deadline.
