Time Limits to Your Family Member's Claim

It's often hard to get a legal claim started when plagued by injuries. Assisting your loved one with an injury claim is a great way to help in their time of need. It's important to act fast, because most injury claims have time limits – also known as statutes of limitation.

Statutes of limitations restrict the time period that a person can file a lawsuit.

A personal injury action must be filed within two years of the date when the injury occurred.

However, there is a "discovery rule," which, in limited cases, extends the time for filing a personal injury action.

Protect the Legal Rights of Your Loved Ones

After a family member was injured in a car accident, knowing how to handle an insurance adjuster can protect their right to collect compensation. An adjuster will ask for your loved one's signature, description of the accident, and more, hoping your loved one will confuse the details of the accident. Pain medication can make the important factors of the accident difficult to remember.

Don't let` an injured family member say or sign anything until an attorney has been contacted. Your loved one can just say, "No" to the insurance company. It's their legal right.
