In Massachusetts, the Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury Claims is Generally Three Years from the Accident’s Date.
SPRINGFIELD, MA, August 10, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ — If you have been injured in an accident, you have three years from the date of the accident to file a personal injury claim in court. If you fail to file a claim within the statute of limitations, you may lose your right to seek compensation for your injuries.
There are some exceptions to the three-year statute of limitations in Massachusetts. For example, if the injured person is a minor, the three-year time limit may be extended until the minor’s 18th birthday.
Additionally, in cases where the injury or accident was not immediately apparent, the statute of limitations may begin to run from the date that the injury was discovered or should have been discovered with reasonable diligence.
It is important to note that the process of filing a personal injury claim can take time, especially if negotiations with insurance companies or other parties are necessary. It is generally advisable to begin the process of filing a claim as soon as possible after an accident or injury.
This can help ensure that important evidence is preserved, witnesses’ memories are fresh, and deadlines are not missed. If you have been injured in an accident, it is important to consult with an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible.
“It is not by chance that we are on top of the trends in Accident, Worker’s Compensation, and Malpractice Law,” says Attorney Christopher Cava of Cava Law Firm. “Winning is No Accident!” says Cava.
He emphasizes that an attorney can help you understand your legal rights and options, gather and preserve evidence, and negotiate with insurance companies or other parties on your behalf.
An attorney can also help ensure that your claim is filed within the statute of limitations and that you receive the maximum amount of compensation available for your injuries.
