How quickly must I act to hire a lawyer for my car accident?
You have 2 years from the date of a car accident to file a lawsuit. However, most injuries and damages resulting from a car accident are paid for by auto insurance companies. Making sure that there is adequate insurance is critical. One of the requirements for an insurance company providing coverage for a car accident (or any other type of claim) is adequate notice of the claim. We cannot force the insured driver that caused the car accident and your injuries to cooperate with their insurance company (that is another condition of the insurance policy), but we can make sure that the insurance company receives adequate and timely notice of the claim covered by their policy. If you wait until near the expiration of the statute of limitations to provide notice to the insurer of the claim covered by the insurance policy issued to the at-fault driver, you should anticipate that the insurance company will deny coverage based upon the failure to receive timely notice of the claim.
