Here’s How Much Time You Have To File Your Vehicle Accident Lawsuit In Southbend, Indiana
Immediately following your accident, you have two years to file a lawsuit for either personal injury, damaged property, or both. If you’re suing the state of Indiana, you have 270 days to have your lawsuit on file. And if you’re suing a city or county, you have up to 180 days to file a lawsuit.
Though on the surface it appears you have ample time to file, many victims find themselves burning the midnight oil to make deadline, omitting important information necessary while filing while the clock continues to wind down, and other common errors. You also have to factor in that yo could spend upwards 6 months to 1 year in recovery alone if you suffer personal injury. It’s unlikely you’ll have the energy and strength to handle all the ‘red tape’ involved with dealing with government or insurance companies.
We know what needs to be filed, when, how and where so you don’t have to. We remove all guess work from the equation.
The Most Common Vehicle Accident Settlements In Indiana
The state of Indiana allows you to recover both economic and non-economic damages. Economic damages (tangible) include medical bills, lost income, and vehicle repairs. Non-economic damages (non-tangible) include pain and suffering, mental anguish, and such.
The most common damages we encounter on a daily basis are car repairs, hospital bills, co-pays, physical and/or psychological therapy, lost income, and pain and suffering.
