If you have been injured in an accident, you may be entitled to cash reimbursements for injuries, medical expenses, as well as compensation for emotional distress. If you’ve been hurt and wish to file a personal injury claim, you should consult with Indianapolis personal injury lawyers directly following an accident.
Indiana state law imposes a Statute of Limitation on those attempting to seek litigation 2 years after an accident. If you attempt to file a legal claim after the 2 year limit, your case will be denied and you will be barred from attempting to take any additional legal action.
Indiana’s Statute of Limitations applies to those who have been injured in a truck, car, motorcycle, bicycle, semi-tractor trailer, or pedestrian type accident. In some cases that involve a Government Entity, such as a State Police Department, Fire Department, School Corporation, etc., the TORT Notice must be filed within 180 days from he date of the accident otherwise legal action will be barred.
After an accident, many people are extremely stressed out and/or depressed. They want the process to be over with as soon as possible; therefore, they attempt to handle the debts following the accident on their own. Unfortunately, debt adds up very quickly and individuals end up not having the income to pay off hospital debt or other personal debts which accrue after an accident. Waiting two years after the accident to file a claim is too late.
If you have been injured in an accident, it is important to seek out the advice of an attorney as soon as you are able. Don’t let the clock run out on your personal injury claim.
