No, the most likely deadline is two years, but there are MANY exceptions that can make that deadline much shorter. For example, I recently closed a case for $1 million dollars for a Texas accident, but we had to file it in Kentucky, where the safest deadline was only 1 year.

Also, the better the attorney, the less likely they are to accept your case the closer you get to the deadline.

And, the more time passes, the harder it is to secure evidence that can make a huge difference.

Generally speaking, no, it is not too late. But you should act quickly to preserve your rights.
