When injured in an auto accident, an attorney will guide you through what you need to do to document your case and make sure you get the maximum recovery for your injuries. Your attorney will be able to explain the process and the timing of when to send any required notices and file any lawsuit.
These times may vary depending on who was involved and where the accident took place. Your attoney will also see to it that you get all the medical attention needed and that you collect and organize all that information. The amount of any settlement or award will be directly tied to how well you are able to document and present your case and the extent of medical attention you needed.
When the time is right to file your claim your attorney will make sure that all the right parties are included in your lawsuit and that it is filed before the statute of limitations runs out.
Typically you will wait until shortly before the statute runs out to give you sufficient time to treat all your injuries and make sure that you are healed as best as you can. In New Jersey the statute of limitations for personal injuries is 2 years. In my next videos i will discuss the statute of limitations and the process of filing a lawsuit for your injuries
