Filing a claim after a personal injury-related accident can be a big step, but it’s a necessary one that all victims must take to escape the financial liability of an accident they didn’t cause.
Waiting to file a claim puts you at risk of missing the window where you’re eligible to take legal action, which forces you to pay for every cost incurred as a result of the accident from your own pocket, even if you weren’t at fault. Situations like this are avoided by taking prompt action.
Victims who know they have a case and those who are unsure should reach out to a legal professional as soon as they’re able. It’s not as difficult as it sounds, either. Complete our free, no-risk case evaluation to connect with our team and tell us more about your situation. We’ll explain your legal options, and if you have a case, there’s no better ally to have moving forward than Morgan and Morgan.
Stay Within the Statute of Limitations
There are a few situations that carry no statute of limitations, but almost all others have a specified timeline for victims to file personal injury claims. These vary by state and accident type, but the most common is around two years after the accident.
It’s of the utmost importance to learn the statute of limitations that applies to your accident and file your claim within that timeframe. Once you do, our team will help you handle the next steps and ensure deadlines are met along the way. And, remember — The sooner you file your claim after an accident, the better the chance of reaching a successful outcome at the end of your case.

Neglected Evidence Tends to Disappear
The human mind is powerful, but it’s not perfect. Our brains can only retain so much information before they must make room for more, meaning you’ll start to forget the finer details of your accident in the days following your accident. The same principle applies to physical evidence, too, as the outdoor elements will quickly scrub the scene of the accident clean of minor details that tell a major story.
That information is vital in personal injury matters. By waiting to file a claim, you run the risk of forgetting or losing out on the critical data it takes to reach a successful outcome, which is why it’s recommended to speak with a legal professional promptly after an accident.
Morgan and Morgan leaves no stone unturned. Our team will collect eyewitness testimony, traffic camera video, and other applicable evidence to build your case as strongly as possible, giving you a chance to step away from the legal side of the accident and physically recover. Our reputation of recovering 15+ billion precedes us, and if a third-party caused you harm, choose the law firm with an extensive track record of proven results—Morgan and Morgan.
It All Starts With Your Personal Injury Claim
Physical injuries are often complimented by financial expenses that can quickly become a snowball of debt. If you weren’t at fault, there’s no reason to shoulder that burden. A personal injury claim is the first step in ensuring that, but if you wait too long, it’s possible that you fall outside your statute of limitations and you become ineligible.
