Stay Within the State’s Time Limits
Many people who experience injuries do not realize that there is a time limit on how long they have to file a claim. Understandably, they are focused on their injury, but may not realize that there is a time limit until it is too late. Failing to file a lawsuit within the time limit can make you ineligible to collect compensation.
In Massachusetts, there are different timelines, depending on the type of claim. For example, most car accidents in the state have a statute of limitation of just three years. For cases that involve medical malpractice, we have just three years from the date of the incident, or longer, if the injury was not immediately realized.
When you are dealing with an injury, it is not easy to follow these timelines. Working with a personal injury lawyer is the best way to ensure your case is filed in a timely manner.
