Do Not Wait Too Long to File a PA Limited Tort Case
You, understandably, have a lot on your mind after your Pennsylvania car accident. You may need immediate medical attention, you may need to find transportation, and you may need to make arrangements to cover an absence at work. You may not be immediately thinking about filing a limited tort lawsuit – and that is okay.
The law understands that the days after your accident are going to be frenzied and hectic. You do not have to file a Pennsylvania car accident case right away. However, it is important to know that the law does limit how long you have to file a claim.
If you have limited tort insurance in Pennsylvania then you generally have two years from the date of the accident to file your lawsuit. However, if you are suing for non-economic damages (such as pain and suffering) because you suffered a serious injury then you may have even more time to file your lawsuit. Courts have found that it may take some time to determine how an injury impacts your life and, thus, the two year statute of limitations may begin from the time you knew, or should have known, that you had a serious injury that had a substantial impact on a bodily function.
Of course, it is recommended that you do not wait that long to contact a Pennsylvania limited tort lawyer. The sooner you contact a lawyer, the sooner your lawyer can start to investigate your case and fight for your just recovery. Accordingly, please call us today to consult a PA limited tort lawyer about your rights.
