If you have been in a motor vehicle accident, and have suffered injuries, you need to understand the statute of limitations. This is a law that describes and defines the length of time an injured person has to file a claim or lawsuit against the negligent or an offending party.
The law can be complicated.
There are exceptions.
For this reason, it is vital to talk with an experienced attorney such as Chong Ye of The Ye Law Firm.
Chong is skilled in collecting the puzzle pieces of an accident and creating a timeline. This timeline allows him to understand exactly when the accident occurred and when an injury was discovered. In the case of a wrongful death injury, it is possible the death occurred long after the accident. When asked, Chong will tell you, “one of the worst things I have to do is to let injured folks or the family of a deceased person the statute of limitations has expired and I cannot help them.”
Once the statute of limitations has expired, the court system very rarely allow any legal proceedings to move forward.
Governmental agency, product liability laws, the age of the injured party, or the date the injury was discovered are all key components to the length of statute of limitation.
