How long do I have to file a personal injury lawsuit?

Warrenton Personal Injury Lawyer Can Help You File On-Time 

The timeframe to file a personal injury claim depends on the type. However, you can usually expect this to be two years from the date of the incident/injury. The best way to learn what the current laws are concerning the statute of limitations is to consult with a Warrenton personal injury lawyer. These laws sometimes change and may depend on the specifics surrounding your case. 

One of the problems with trying to negotiate a settlement in a personal injury claim is that it can drag out for a long time. If you wait too long, then you run the risk of being unable to file a lawsuit. 

Although two years might sound like a lot of time, the process can be very complicated and cause things to be delayed. This is why your first step should be to immediately seek legal counsel. Once you hit the deadline to file a claim, there is nothing you can do. You will then have no right to sue the party that is liable for your injuries.
