However, there are some exceptions where you only have one (1) year to resolve your claim or file suit, so you need to contact an experienced personal injury law firm to help you as soon as possible. The clock starts ticking on the date the accident occurs.

Don’t wait to get started on your case; you will lose your right to recover compensation once the statute of limitations runs out. Your case will most likely be dismissed if you attempt to bring a lawsuit against a liable party after the statutory deadline.
