Personal Injury and Wrongful Death Claims After a South Hill Car Accident

Car accidents in South Hill often result in severe injuries, and sometimes those collisions are deadly. Accordingly, South Hill motor vehicle crash claims sometimes are filed as personal injury lawsuits by the injured party, while other claims may be wrongful death lawsuits filed by the personal representative of the decedent’s estate.

Depending upon whether you are filing a personal injury lawsuit or a wrongful death claim, you should know that you only have a limited amount of time to do each. Both have a three-year statute of limitations. However, the date on which the “clock” for these claims begins ticking is different.

Filing Your South Hill, Washington Claim on Time

According to Washington law, you will need to file a South Hill personal injury lawsuit within three years from the date that the accident occurred. To be clear, you do not have to finish a lawsuit or even begin any of the major processes involved in the case before the statute of limitations runs out. Rather, you simply must ensure that your claim is filed within that strict time window. If you are filing a wrongful death lawsuit, the statute of limitations is also three years, but the time-window for filing your claim starts on the date of the decedent’s death. This is the recognized date on which the clock begins to tick even if the decedent was alive or weeks or months after the accident. If the decedent eventually succumbed to those injuries, the clock on the statute of limitations begins to tick on the date of death.

You might be thinking that you do not need to worry about the statute of limitations because three years is a long time. However, it is essential that you begin working with a South Hill car crash lawyer on your case as soon as possible. Insurance claims may take months or even years before you know if you will be able to get a reasonable settlement, and evidence can be lost if you wait too long to seek help from an injury attorney.
