Did you suffer injuries in a car accident as a result of a negligent driver? You may want to hold that driver responsible for your injuries and medical bills, but you only have so much time to file a claim in Kentucky. Watch this video to find out what you should know about filing a personal injury claim after a crash.

In Kentucky, car accident victims are only given one year from the time of the crash to bring a claim. If you don’t file a personal injury lawsuit before the statute of limitations expires, you will be barred from collecting compensation in your case. The reason this law is in place is to make your case stronger against the driver who hit you. If you wait too long to file a car accident claim, memories fade and evidence may be lost—making it harder to prove fault in the crash.

In order to make the strongest claim possible, you should take pictures at the accident scene and get witnesses’ contact information. You should then work with an experienced car accident lawyer to ensure you get the maximum compensation possible in your case.
