Most people involved in accidents don't think to hire a lawyer. Right after an accident, it's difficult to assess the seriousness of any injuries, especially with adrenaline pumping so high. Combine that with insurance companies often calling and collecting information regarding the accident and any injuries, assuring the injured party that everything will be taken care of. This usually leaves the injured party frustrated, when their claim is settled before they receive all of the treatment they need. But nothing can be done about it, because the claim has been settled.
The best way for a victim injured through an accident to protect themselves is to call an attorney before settling any claims. At Hassuneh Law Firm, we're here to help!
Indiana law places a time limit on how long an accident victim must pursue a claim against the individual who caused the accident and their injuries. This time limit, or statute of limitations, is generally set at two years. This means that an injured person has two years from the date of the accident to file a claim.
