A personal injury claim may arise when a person(s) has suffered harm from an accident such as, but not limited to, car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, slip and falls or an accident occurring on another’s property. Through civil court proceedings an individual can find another liable by obtaining a court judgment. Personal injury claims are often also resolved by reaching an informal settlement agreement without the filing of a lawsuit.
An individual has limited time to file a lawsuit and time generally starts from the time the accident occurred. It is important to know what your state’s statute of limitations are in accordance to your injuries as statute of limitations often vary from state to state and by the type of injury sustained.
