VIDEO TRANSCRIPT: A common question that people have is, "How long do you have in order to make a claim if you are involved in an automobile accident?" Well, first of all, it's important for me to get involved in the case as soon as possible, because the longer it takes for me to get involved, the more water under the bridge, the more difficult it is for me to go back and pick up the pieces. So, if I can get involved in the case right away, then I can make sure that my client has proper medical care, that evidence is preserved, documentation is preserved.
Exactly how long you have is a very difficult question. There is no black and white answer for that because every case is different -- situations can vary. But, it is important to remember there are time limits, so it's best not to wait. You need to act promptly to get the proper legal advice so your rights are protected.
