Are there time limits to sue for injuries in a catastrophic injury case?
There are a variety of time limits in which to sue in a catastrophic injury case. This is dependent in large part in what the injuries were and who caused the injuries. For example, in a typical automobile accident, the time limit may be four years. In a wrongful death case, the time limit to file suit is two years. In a medical malpractice, the time limit to file a lawsuit is also two years.
There are other factors that may shorten that time period. It’s important to get with an attorney as soon as possible, especially in a catastrophic injury case because you don’t want time limits to preclude you from getting the full compensation that you deserve.
