A: One year from the date of the injury, if you knew you were injured. There are additional rules regarding unknown injuries, hidden injuries, and additional rules apply if the injury is due to an auto accident. This is a very complicated area of the law, and you should immediately talk to a lawyer about when your statute of limitations runs. Don't assume it has already run, it may not have, because of the multitude of rules that apply. It is as dangerous to assume that you are already too late as it is to assume you have more time. Is the injury work related? If so, workers compensation may apply. Call a lawyer today, in your community, who handles this type of case.
