Personal Injury

Frequently Asked Questions About Personal Injury

What should I do if I have been involved in a motor vehicle accident that is not my fault and I have suffered personal injuries?

It is very important to consult with an attorney as soon as possible following any accident in which you have been injured to be sure that your rights are protected and to be sure that crucial evidence of liability is not lost as a result of the passage of time.

How long do I have to bring a claim?

If you have been injured as a result of someone else’s negligence, you have the right to recover damages for those injuries. Generally speaking, there is a statute of limitations that requires you to bring an action for personal injuries within 3 years of the date of the injury.

What about my medical bills?

In motor vehicle accidents, there is generally so-called “personal injury” protection coverage provided on the typical motor vehicle insurance policy which provides compensation to an injured party for medical expenses and lost wages without regard of fault up to certain limits. However, if you have incurred medical expenses in excess of $2,000.00, you also have the right to be compensated for your pain and suffering.
