Can I File a Personal Injury Lawsuit for an Accident That Happened a Year Ago?

Yes, you can, and the sooner you take legal action, the better. However, this does not mean the sooner you file a personal injury lawsuit the better. This course of action is determined on a case by base basis. Many times it’s in the best interests of our clients not to file suit—again, this pivots on a number of considerations.  What is important is that the more time your attorney has to evaluate the circumstances and gather evidence strengthens the impact of your argument.  Do not delay as procrastination could impact some valuable and time-sensitive dates. For instance, the statute of limitations (time period in which a suit has to be filed to preserve your rights/claims).
