How Long Do I Have To File a Personal Injury Claim or Suit?

In order to qualify for insurance coverage after an injury, you will need to report the injury to your insurance adjuster within the time frame laid out in your policy. In other words, the amount of time you have could vary from 24 hours to 90 days, depending on your provider and the type of claim. If you’re unsure about whether or not to call your insurance adjuster, or what to say when you do, you can always request a consultation with a personal injury attorney.
On the other hand, if you plan on filing a lawsuit to get the personal injury compensation that you need, then you will need to complete the lawsuit filing process within two years of the date of the accident. Because the lawsuit filing, negotiation, and settlement process tend to be more complex than insurance claims, we recommend contacting an attorney before moving forward.
