What is a Personal Injury Lawsuit?

When a person suffers harm from an accident or injury and someone else might be legally responsible for that harm through negligence or deliberate misconduct, a personal injury lawsuit may be filed against the responsible party to seek payment for medical bills, pain and suffering, and other ongoing medical expenses.

How long do I have to file a lawsuit?

Every state has time limits, called “statutes of limitations,” which determine the amount of time you have to file a personal injury lawsuit. In some states it may be as little as one year to for certain accidents. If you miss the deadline for filing your case, you may lose your legal right to damages for your injury. That is why you should talk with a lawyer as soon as you suffer or discover an injury.
