How Long Do I Have To File My Car Accident Injury Lawsuit?

Victims unfamiliar with the Statute of Limitations could be shocked to learn that a time limit is imposed on all victims who wish to file a lawsuit. The time varies based on the legal matter involved in the case. However, once the time has passed, the victim can no longer file a claim and seek compensation for the damages or harm suffered due to that incident.

In cases involving personal injuries suffered in a car accident, the victim is given two years from the date of the accident to file their claim with the court. In cases that result in a loss of life, the case becomes a wrongful death instead of a personal injury lawsuit, and the two-year time limit to file a claim begins on the date of the victim’s passing. However, there are rarely any other exceptions that alter the amount of time provided to victims from the original amount specified by the Statute of Limitations.

It is essential for victims to seek legal guidance as soon as possible to understand the time they have to file a claim and how long it could take to prepare the case. Knowing that the longer you wait to seek legal assistance, the more challenging it could be to contact witnesses or gather other information pertaining to the incident and lawsuit. Even if you are unsure if you will pursue a lawsuit, please reach out to DTLA Law Group today for a free consultation to discuss these critical aspects of your case, knowing that you are never obligated to hire our firm or take legal action.

Understanding The Motivation Of An Insurance Company

Unfortunately, many car accident victims believe that their insurance company is ready to help them resolve their medical expenses or other losses caused by the vehicle accident. However, that is not actually accurate. Insurance companies are in business to make money. The way they choose to do that is to collect insurance premiums that will exceed the amount that they need to pay out to the people who hold their insurance policies. So, the priority is making money, not helping you cover all the costs created by your car accident.

Knowing this information, you must understand what information you should provide to your insurance company and the representatives of insurance companies covering the other people or vehicles involved in the accident. Before speaking with any insurance company representatives, it is always wise to contact DTLA Law Group to discuss the details of the car accident, your injuries, and what is in your best interest. Only your lawyer and legal team are obligated to work with nothing but your best interest and well-being in mind.

What Expenses Will Be Covered By My Car Accident Injury Lawsuit Compensation?

If you are worried about how you will pay your expenses and cover the losses caused by your car accident and the injuries you suffered, please know that many items will be included in your lawsuit compensation. Some victims fear that only medical bills will be covered, but that is far from the truth. You will work closely with the experts at DTLA Law Group to calculate all the losses and expenses caused by your accident and injuries, such as:

  • All medical expenses related to the diagnosis, treatment, or rehabilitation of the injuries caused by the car accident, including any essential medical devices, prescribed medication, therapy, or mental healthcare to overcome the stress or trauma of the event
  • The replacement value of any personal property that was damaged or destroyed in the accident
  • If the injuries were severe and require an extended recovery time, you can seek compensation for your pain and suffering, which is typically based on recent cases that involved similar injuries and recovery processes
  • Your lost income if the injuries you suffered prevented you from performing the tasks required for your normal job or for any time misses from your job to attend medical appointments related to the treatment of the injuries suffered in the car accident
  • All legal fees and expenses related to your car accident injury lawsuit

Do I Really Need To Spend The Money On A Car Accident Injury Lawyer?

Even after you learn that part of the compensation you receive is intended to cover your legal costs, it can be challenging to justify paying $300 or $400 an hour or up to 40% of your lawsuit compensation to your legal team. However, you need to understand the added value that comes from your investment in the expert legal team at DTLA Law Group.

First, after suffering injuries in a car accident, the last thing you will want to do is wade through countless documents and learn lengthy processes to prepare your own lawsuit. The legal system is complex, and it takes years of education and practice for a lawyer to master the skills needed to secure the total compensation you deserve. In addition, taking on this responsibility is sure to increase your stress level and slow the healing process as you work to achieve a complete recovery. Finally, it is broadly accepted in the legal world that a case handled by a skilled lawyer will result in three times the compensation as a similar case that is handled by the victim.

Plugging in some numbers will make the value of your DTLA Law Group car accident injury lawyer crystal clear. Assume you litigate a case and seek $100K. You will be very fortunate to get that total amount to put towards your expenses and bills. However, if that case is handled by a DTLA Law Group car accident injury lawyer, it is likely to yield $300K. But you will be paying up to $120K in fees if the rate is billed at 40% of the compensation.

The really crucial information here is that you will still be taking home $180K after paying your legal team for their skill and expertise. You will never lose a moment’s sleep as the person responsible for preparing, filing, or litigating the car accident injury lawsuit that will cover all your losses and expenses. It is wise to spend a little money to make almost double the money you might get handling the case yourself.
