Is it too Late to Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer?

Most people do not realize they should have hired a personal injury lawyer until it is too late. In the moments after an accident, many are not thinking about the fact that they are entitled to compensation. Rather, they are putting their best foot forward, attempting to manage the situation themselves, the best they can.

For some, years pass before they consider hiring a personal injury lawyer to assess their case. Is it too late for you or your loved one? Keep reading to learn if it's too late to hire a personal injury lawyer after your accident.

Statute of Limitations

What is a statute of limitations? This is a limit on the amount of time that an individual can pursue legal action for a variety of cases. This limit varies widely from state to state and depending on the type of accident or injury. For example, in Ohio, the statute of limitations for legal action after a car accident is two years from the date of the accident, but it is three years in New York.

Car accidents are not the only types of cases that have a statute of limitations, it applies to post cases involving personal injury and the time an individual is allowed to pursue legal action after sustaining their injury.

How Can a Personal Injury Lawyer Help?

In order to determine whether or not it is too late for you to pursue legal action, you must first determine the statute of limitations in your state. A personal injury lawyer can tell you right away whether or not it has passed.

If the statute of limitations has not passed in your state, then your personal injury lawyer can consult with you on how to move forward. Together, you can determine your losses/damages and whether or not there is enough to win compensation for your accident.

A personal injury lawyer has the resources you need to figure out these details. With the right help, you could earn the compensation you deserve for your injuries, financial losses, and emotional losses as a result of your accident.

Even if you do not think you need a personal injury lawyer, you should still consult with one. You may be surprised by what they have to say.
