How much time do I have to file a lawsuit if I’m injured in an automobile accident?
Adults injured in automobile accidents have one year from the date of the accident to resolve their case by settlement. If a settlement is not reached, they must file suit on or before the anniversary of the accident to preserve their rights! Minors have until their 19th birthday to settle a claim. It is important to note here that the claim of the minor’s parents for medical expenses must be resolved on or before the anniversary of the accident; otherwise, suit must be filed to protect their claim.
