Q: I had a personal injury where I walked into a glass wall that was not obvious. Apparently, several people have walked
into it. The building manager was vey nice , I was knocked unconscious and sent to the hospital. The 3rd party that handles the building insurance claims was not very nice to me although they did reimbursed my health insurance company's payments. The two year anniversary is on 4/1. I'm left with persistent problems but I also have a workman's compensation case for the same body part. Should I pursue this case
A: No one could say on such little information, but you should definitely consult with PI attorney for an in depth consultation on your potential claims. Your statute of limitations expires on the 2 year anniversary, so do not delay any further.
more info needed.
you should consider writing out a detailed summary of the facts and make an appointment with a PI lawyer in your area......and with your WC attorney.
many lawyers will be reluctant b/c of the short fuse.
you must fine by the 2 yr anniversary or you lose your rights.
A: You should immediately contact a personal injury attorney and see what your options are. There are strict timelines for you to take action or you will lose your rights to. So don't delay.
It would depend on what you goals are in the case, to get a monetary settlement it would depend on what your injuries are still and what they were for the past 2 years.
Very short notice to file case if not filed immediately for the 2 years of your accident otherwise SOL will bar you from filing any future recovery. Agreed would need to talk to you more to obtain more details. There are filing fees to pay to file your case and service of process fees to get started.
Good Luck, talk to an attorney immediately.
