If you’ve never been injured in an accident, the idea of filing a personal injury claim may seem complicated and difficult. More than likely, you will have plenty of questions — such as “should I file a claim?” and “how long do I have to file a claim?”

Luckily, with nearly 65 years in personal injury experience, Hurst Limontes LLC can help answer some of these questions.

When to file

There will always be people that feel a personal injury claim is purely money-driven — and they’d be incorrect. Personal injury claims are about receiving compensation for emotional and physical damages, as well as injuries that may have been sustained.

When it comes to the timeframe to file a claim, Indiana law requires that you may make an injury claim within two years of your accident.

When to seek medical treatment

It should go without saying that if you’ve suffered serious injuries, you should seek medical attention immediately. However, sometimes determining whether or not to see a doctor can seem like a gray area. Ultimately, trust your gut — if something feels off and you feel a doctor needs to be seen, always err on the side of caution.

How a personal injury claim works

A personal injury claim can work in your benefit to help cover the costs of several different areas — from medical bills and lost wages, pain and suffering, loss of companionship and wrongful death.
