When to Contact a Personal Injury Lawyer
According to the law, injury victims have a set amount of time to file a personal injury claim before they lose their right to do so legally. This law is called the statute of limitations.
According to the Missouri Code section 516.120, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases in the state of Missouri is five years. This means you have five years from the date your injury occurred to file, or you will risk losing your right to do so along with your right to pursue damages.
It’s important to note that exceptions that can either shorten or extend this time period do exist. Because of this it’s crucial you speak to an experienced St. Louis personal injury attorney about the specifics of your claim as soon as you can.
