The typical statute of limitations, which is the amount of time you have to sue someone for something that has happened to you, is 1-3 years. Don’t wait until the deadline is almost upon you to speak to an attorney because you might find that you would prefer a different attorney, or the attorney you do like might be too busy to handle something that requires a rush.
Additionally, your injury might require documentation from a medical professional beyond the documentation that you already have. Waiting may decrease your potential recovery. Don’t wait, contact an attorney today.
