Thinking About Your Future When Injured
Often day to day concerns following an injury incident can squeeze out thoughts of the time deadlines for filing a lawsuit. A lawyer can help you hold the parties responsible for all those bills that begin accumulating after an accident, but only if you see a lawyer before the time expires for filing a lawsuit.
For all personal injury cases in Indiana there is a two year statute of limitations for filing suit. If you try to sue more than two years after your accident, the parties you sue can ask the court to dismiss your claim as being barred by the statute of limitations.
Even if you are uncertain about wanting to pursue a lawsuit in the future, time can slip away from you before you know it. It is important to be aware that if you are thinking about consulting an attorney about your case, it’s always better to do so sooner rather than later. We recommend adding reminders to your calendar well in advance of the two year deadline, so that you can arrange to consult an attorney well before the deadline.
