Generally speaking, the limitation period (after which you lose your right to seek compensation) in a personal injury case is two years. However, for people under the age of 19 or who are under a mental disability, this does not apply. If the facts necessary to prove your claim were not known to you, the two year limitation may not apply either. The laws as to limitations are complicated and you should not assume that you have lost your right to compensation due to passage of time without speaking to an experienced injury lawyer. We have won large settlements for clients whose claims were assumed to be barred by passage of time. Each case depends on circumstances.
