After an accident, a person has 14 days to file a claim against the insurance company of the liable party. If medical and legal assistance are not sought within the 14-day eligibility period, a person will be unable to file a claim against the opposing insurance company.
Almost all types of legal action have time limits that determine if a lawsuit can be filed. These time limits are most commonly known as the statutes of limitations. The statute of limitations varies depending on the type of case, but it is important to know when the statute of limitations expires for any claims that you may want to pursue.
