The accident I was injured in happened at the end of 2017. Is it too late to file a claim now?
Whether it is too late to file a claim now or not depends on the type of accident you were involved in, and when you discovered your injuries from the accident. For example, some injuries can manifest weeks or months after your accident.
After an accident, accident victims have a period of time open to them to file a personal injury lawsuit. That period is referred to as the statute of limitations. In Kentucky, the general statue for personal injury lawsuits is one year. However, the statute of limitations period for automobile accidents is two years.
If you miss the cut off date to file a claim, you stand the change of losing your legal right to file for damages. This is why it is important for you to talk with an attorney as soon as you can after an accident or when you discover an injury related to the accident.
