How Long Do You Have to File a Personal Injury Claim?
Those who have been injured in an accident caused by another’s negligence have the opportunity to file a personal injury claim and recover damages from the responsible party.
This ensures that the injured individual does not have to pay for the consequences of an accident that wasn’t their fault.
It’s in your best interest to know the limitations you have to file a personal injury claim, including your state’s statute of limitations.
Statute of Limitations in Missouri and Kansas
The statute of limitations for a personal injury claim varies from state to state.
In Missouri, generally, you have five years from the date of the accident and injury to file a claim. In Kansas, generally, you have two years.
Why File a Personal Injury Claim?
After an accident and injury, filing a personal injury claim can benefit you in several ways, including the following:
You may recover compensation from the liable party so you don’t have to pay for sudden medical bills and lost wages on your own.
You may hold the negligent party accountable for their actions, thereby reducing their chances of acting recklessly in the future and harming someone else.
