You typically have two years from the date of the accident to file a negligence suit. Insurance companies are notorious for delaying in cases where the injured party is representing themselves long enough for the statute of limitations to run out. I would recommend that you seek the services of an attorney to assist you in the process. Personal injury attorneys will help you get the proper compensation for your family (usually more than the insurance company will even consider offering you if you go it alone). Please feel free to call me if you want to discuss this further (440) 552-5492.

This answer is for general information only and is not intended as legal advice regarding your specific situation. In order to assess your legal matter properly and obtain legal advice, you must contact an attorney directly. Provision of this general information does not create an attorney-client relationship.
I agree with the above answer. The statute of limitations is 2 years from the date of the accident so from what it sounds like, you have another year before the statute will run. I would suggest talking to an attorney who specializes in personal injury.
Never try to resolve an accident case without a lawyer or you will either get #1. no money or #2. a tiny nuisance settlement. You would need to retain a personal injury lawyer. Find a lawyer with a low contingency fee, less than 30% with no costs deducted, so you get the lion’s share of the settlement, not your lawyer.

Consult with a local injury lawyer asap. I never allow the ins cos unlimited access to my client's medical records. They are looking for anything they can find to use against your claim. You dont want them dealing with your health ins co as your atty probably can negotiate a reduction in the reimbursement. You kids' claims may need to get court approval. See a lawyer for free, and on percentage.
