People often ask me when is the right time to hire a personal injury lawyer after a car crash. My answer almost always is as soon as possible. While the statute of limitations is three years from the date of the accident other than wrongful death cases which are two years and minor cases which are tolled until they reach 21 years of age you should call a lawyer as soon as possible or some of your rights could be lost.
If you were in a car, truck, bike, motorcycle or pedestrian accident please call David Polow seven days a week. My phone number is 802-888-7707. The call is free so call today. Here is a summary of the statute of limitations in Vermont:
Before you give much thought to pursuing a personal injury lawsuit for your injury, you must first consider whether or not your case has expired. For most people, this doesn’t apply, since it is common to seek compensation right away after an injury. However, in some instances, for whatever reason, a client may be wanting to file a lawsuit years later.
All states are different, but in Vermont, the statute of limitations for a personal injury case is three years from the date of the incident. For wrongful death suits, the limit is two years from the date of death.
