Is there a time frame within which a claim must be made?

Typically, a victim of personal injury has a limited period of time (determined by Statutes of Limitations) in which to file his or her claim in court, or they are forever barred from succeeding on their claim and from recovering. In Massachusetts, this time period is generally three (3) years from the date of the accident or incident that resulted in the injury. In some states the statute of limitations may require filing of the claim in court in less time, such as within one (1) years. Further, some types of cases have notice requirements that may be as short as 30 days. Although exceptions may exist in certain instances, each exception is fact-sensitive and requires the analysis of a qualified attorney to determine if they are applicable. In addition, given the complexities of some cases and the need for a thorough investigation and legal analysis before it can be determined that a claim should be filed, waiting until the end of the period in which one must file a claim could deprive the attorney sufficient time to complete a review of the case in a timely fashion. Anyone who suspects they may be a victim of personal injury should thus immediately contact a qualified attorney.
