If you have been injured in an auto accident in Kentucky, there is a “statute of limitations” that applies. This statute simply sets a deadline for filing a personal injury, civil lawsuit with the court system. Two years after the date of the auto accident is the deadline, in most cases. If you fail to file your suit within that period of time, you essentially forfeit your rights. For this reason, you would benefit from contacting an attorney immediately after your accident, in order to give plenty of time to settle a prospective case first.
