Are there any time limits for filing a lawsuit after being injured as a pedestrian in an accident?

Are there any time limits for filing a lawsuit after being injured as a pedestrian in an accident

There are time limits, known as statutes of limitations, for filing a lawsuit after being injured as a pedestrian in an accident. These statutes vary depending on the state where the accident occurred. Statutes of limitations set a specific deadline within which you must initiate legal action, and if you fail to do so within the prescribed time frame, you may lose your right to seek compensation through a lawsuit.


What Are the Statutes of Limitations for Pedestrian Accidents?

The statutes of limitations for pedestrian accident cases can range from one to several years, and the time limit typically starts from the date of the accident or from the date you discovered your injuries. In California, the statute of limitations for pedestrian accidents is two years from the date of the accident.

It's important to be aware of the statute of limitations that applies to your specific location. Failing to file a lawsuit within the designated time frame can result in the court dismissing your case, regardless of the strength of your claim.


Can An Attorney Ensure I File My Claim Within the Statute of Limitations?

If you were injured as a pedestrian in an accident, speak with a pedestrian accident lawyer as soon as possible. They can advise you on the applicable statute of limitations and guide you through the legal process.

If you believe you have a valid claim, do not delay in taking legal action. Initiating the process early allows your attorney ample time to gather evidence, interview witnesses, and build a strong case. By acting promptly and seeking legal advice early on, you can ensure that your rights are protected and that you have sufficient time to pursue fair compensation for your injuries and losses after being injured as a pedestrian in an accident.

Last year I had an accident and my car was totaled. I was very upset and didn't know what to do. A friend told me to call MVP and it was the best decision ever. They got my car paid off very fast, set me up with a doctor, and just last week I got a fat check for my pain and suffering. Thank you MVP!

MVP Accident Attorneys was the best decision ever made. They helped me through the process and made it stress free for me. It was first accident and i was super stressed because i didn’t know what to do. I called MVP and was treated so kindly by amazing people who went over my accident with me and any questions i had. They have a whole team! I was then helped by attorney and case managers who set me up with treatment so I can get all patched up. Finally, the liens department took care of all my bills and made sure i had nothing to worry about. 11/10 would recommend them to family and friends! You cannot go wrong with MVP
