Don’t Wait Too Long To File Suit

Every personal injury case is different in some way, but one thing they all have in common is that if the victim waits too long to take legal action, they will lose their claim no matter how strong their case is.

The Law Offices of Smith & Doran, P.C., provides detailed and time-tested personal injury representation in Morris and Passaic counties, New Jersey. As a Certified Civil Trial Attorney, Robert A. Smith has a thorough understanding of personal injury law and will virtually eliminate the risk of error in your claim.

How Long Do I Have To File?

The law in each state imposes a time limit on how long you have to file a personal injury lawsuit, which is called the "statute of limitations." In New Jersey, the time limit is two years from the date you discovered (or reasonably should have discovered) the harm you suffered.

The statute of limitation's purpose is to ensure that all witnesses are available to testify and the physical evidence, such as your medical records, are not damaged or lost. It is a strict limit. If you try to file a lawsuit after the statute of limitations has "tolled," your claim will almost certainly be dismissed.

The best way to avoid this scenario is to contact The Law Offices of Smith & Doran, P.C., as soon as possible. Our attorneys will take care of all the steps involved in every personal injury lawsuit so you will get the chance to get your case resolved on the merits.
