If you are involved in an accident, it is important to make sure that you file your injury compensation case at the appropriate time. Filing a case too soon may limit what can be recovered. Waiting too long to file a case may bar any recovery whatsoever. The Sacramento CA injury lawyers from The Law Office of Black & DePaoli, PC can assist in helping you with your case.
When do you begin filing your injury compensation case after an accident?
If you sustain injuries in an accident, then a claim to recover compensation may be filed if the injuries were caused by another’s negligence. A case must be filed within a specific period of time called the statute of limitations. If a case is filed outside of the statute of limitations, then the case may be dismissed and your claim for compensation denied.
A case should be filed once the extent of damages and expenses incurred are known. Because accidents often involve extensive medical treatment and rehabilitation, it is important to ensure that you have identified all of the injuries and damages related to an accident. By contacting a personal injury law firm in Sacramento shortly after the accident, you will have legal advice to help you know when to file your case.
