What is the statute of limitations for filing a lawsuit after a car accident?

It’s very important to begin the process of filing a claim as soon as an accident has occurred, so that you do not lose out on your rights to legal compensation for the accident. Delays may render your claim invalid. If you were injured in an accident, get in touch with a car accident attorney immediately to begin the process of filing a claim again.
