They had the correct phone number & address, they had came to my house when I couldn't get out of bed for 3 months, I don't understand why they'd need to look up on LinkedIn an get an address that happened to be a previous address from 10yrs prior to send my mail an right after that covid 19 started The steps had old torn carpet on them an the metal strip at the top was slick worn downhad no grooves on it causingme to slide downthe steps. My question is can I still pursue this? Thank you

A: On what date and year did the accident happen? Generally, in Kentucky you only have one year from the date of your injury to file a lawsuit. Please let me know the answer to my question so I can further advise you.

Thanks
