You have 2 years to file a personal injury claim

On Behalf of | May 18, 2020 | Car Accidents

Being involved in a car wreck can lead to serious injuries, so the victims must ensure that they get the medical care they need. This is sometimes a costly endeavor when the co-pays, deductibles and other out-of-pocket expenses come into the picture. Unfortunately, not obtaining the care and other items that are necessary for treatment isn’t really an option. This puts the financial pressure on the innocent victims of these crashes.

We know that most people don’t have the money to cover this type of catastrophe. The financial stress can make it difficult for them to focus on healing, so they can get to the life they knew before the crash or the life that they’ll have now if the injury was catastrophic.

One option that you have if you’re in this position is to seek compensation. This enables you to shift the liability to the negligent driver. There really isn’t any reason why an innocent victim should be left trying to struggle to pay these expenses.

You only have a limited time to seek compensation in these cases. West Virginia laws sets this time limit at two years, so be sure that you start getting your case together as soon as possible after the wreck. This gives us time to gather the evidence and determine the specifics of what you’ll seek.

In these personal injury cases, you need to think about what damages you’ve already dealt with. We also need to go a step beyond that and try to determine what future expenses you might incur. Your case must include anything you’re likely to need to care for the injury because you can’t ask for more money once the case is resolved.
