Personal Injury and accident law is a broad field that can include motor vehicle, bicycle, and slip and fall accidents. A Personal Injury case arises when the negligence or wrongdoing of another party is the direct cause of a person’s injury and suffering. The responsible party can be an individual, company, corporation, or government entity.
Strict deadlines apply to all cases. The statute of limitations for a case against the government is two years, but there is a 90-day tort claims notice requirement. This applies to claims brought against a local or state government entity. Cases against private entities carry a three-year statute of limitations, but it is important to begin the process as soon as possible to maximize settlement potential.
