Understanding the Statute of Limitations

If you have been injured in an accident caused by someone else’s negligent actions, you may suffer significant physical and mental injuries that could leave you disabled or unable to return to work. These injuries could potentially cost you thousands of dollars in medical bills, lost wages, and emotional trauma. You need to take legal action today and fight to recover financial compensation so you aren’t forced paying for these expenses and losses out of your own pocket. As a plaintiff, you do not have an unlimited amount of time to file a civil lawsuit in hopes of recovering financial compensation. In fact, the statute of limitations puts a time limit on how long you have to take legal action.

To make sure you don’t miss out on recovering financial compensation, contact a Louisville personal injury lawyer of the Sampson Law Firm today at 502-584-5050 and schedule a free consultation. Our attorneys are well-versed in civil law and prepared to put that knowledge to use for you.

How Long Do I Have to File a Claim?

Under the statute of limitations, plaintiffs must file within the time limit or they cannot pursue legal action that allows them to potentially obtain financial compensation. In the state of Kentucky, the statute of limitations has the following time restrictions:

  • Personal injury cases – one year
  • Professional malpractice (medical malpractice) – within one year of the date of the act
  • Product liability – one year

By speaking with a personal injury lawyer immediately after the accident, he or she can ensure you file within the limits set by the statute of limitations and don’t miss your chance to recover financial compensation.
