When you are involved in a personal injury accident, there are many things you have to think about: your health, your safety, your long term recovery, your finances, and whether or not you will be able to hold the person who caused your accident and your injuries responsible for their negligence. When your accident was caused by the negligence of another citizen just like you, there are laws governing your ability to file a lawsuit and to collect compensation from them. These laws are known as the statute of limitations. There are also laws governing how the case is presented and what your total rights and responsibilities are for collecting damages from the individual who caused your accident and your injuries, or who caused the death of your loved one. This is why many individuals, especially in complicated or very serious personal injury accident cases, opt to hire a skilled personal injury attorney to help them not only file their case, but to build a strong case that can be won, and that will ensure a proper outcome in terms of damages.
