Re: I Was Rear Ended and Injured, How Long Should Settlement Take
you have not identified your state so I cannot speak to how long you have to file a suit. You would have to do that prior to the expiration of the time as controlled by the statute of limitations for your state. That usually varies from 1 to 2 years in most states.
Many lawyers will not file the suit until shortly prior to the expiration of the allowable time. That way, the have the most complete information regarding your your healing process which means they would be able to have a better idea of your long term prognosis.
I am not an attorney and any advice is not to be construed as legal advice. You might even want to ignore my advice. Actually, there are plenty of real attorneys that you might want to ignore as well.
