The Twin Cities have grown up over the past several decades. As the local population keeps on growing, our streets and highways have become busier than ever before, and there are no signs that growth will be stopping any time soon. One of the downsides to all this growth, though, is that your chances of being hurt in a serious car accident can go up and up.
The good news is that the law allows you to seek financial recovery if the accident wasn’t your fault. A personal injury lawsuit can allow you to get the compensation you need for your medical bills, follow-up care, medications, and rehabilitation. In addition, it can provide the funds you need to repair or replace your vehicle and any other personal property damaged or destroyed in the accident.
Filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit After a Car Accident
However, there are some rules to a personal injury lawsuit. Some protect the injured party, such as the right to file a lawsuit. Some rules are designed to protect the rights of the accused, such as the statute of limitations.
The statute of limitations defines how long after an accident an injured person has to file a personal injury lawsuit. In the state of Minnesota, the statute of limitations after a car crash or other personal injury is two years from the date the accident occurred. After that time has passed, you do not have the ability to seek compensation, which is why it’s so important to start the legal process right away, while the evidence is still fresh.
