Over the years, personal injury has become a highly specialized area of the law. For starters, causes of action each come with their own elements required to establish liability or fault. To make matters more complex, current standards are subject to change, as new legislation and judicial opinions can uphold or overrule existing law at any time. Even the most experienced of attorneys must regularly attend continuing legal education (CLE) seminars and stay up to date on changes in the law.
Time is of the essence if you suspect someone else caused you to suffer harm. You only have a certain period of time to resolve your claim, as each state has laws governing the time frame within which a lawsuit must be filed. If you do not reach a settlement or file suit within the relevant statute of limitation, you could be barred from recovery altogether. Similarly, multiple parties may bear responsibility for your injuries and losses. The law places the burden on you, the injured victim, to identify all potentially responsible parties. If a lawsuit is not filed against a defendant within the applicable statute of limitation, that party may not be responsible for compensating you. This highlights the importance of fully investigating the accident and examining all potential theories of recovery.
