Take A Stand

Don't underestimate the complexity of your case. Make sure you take strong legal action right away. Car accident attorney Dan Carlton can aggressively investigate your claim right away. He understands the urgency of such cases based on his years of experience.

Technically, you have up to 2 years to take legal action after a personal injury case. The deadline (known as the statute of limitations) for libel and slander cases is 1 year, while the deadline for cases involving damage to personal property is 3 years.

That might seem like a long time, but the reality is the longer you wait, the harder it often becomes to build a strong case. Evidence disappears. Witnesses move away. Stories change. While you're deciding what to do, the insurance company for the person at fault has probably already started its investigation with one goal in mind - to pay you as little as possible.
