How long do I have to file an injury case?


Robert Potter – Generally speaking, there are statute of limitations that apply to different types of cases and clients will always ask, well, how long do I have to file a case?

Ted Mann – Typically in Alabama, any personal injury case, for the most part is going to fall under a two year statute of limitations. Meaning, that you’re going to have two years from the date of the event to file your lawsuit or otherwise your claim is going to be forever barred. So, it goes back to something we’ve talked about previously. Don’t delay. Contact a lawyer and begin the process of not only collecting evidence and preserving data, but preserving your lawsuit.
