The Sooner You Call, the Sooner our Kansas city personal injury lawyers Can Help

Whether from embarrassment or lack of time, many victims fail to retain legal help in a timely fashion after their accident.

This will only serve to weaken the success of your case. Many personal injury and car accident claims are placed on a time limit by Missouri law, causing you to lose compensation if you miss the deadline. Today is the most important time to take action for a better tomorrow.

How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Claim in Missouri?

How long an injury victim has to file a claim before they lose their right to do so is governed by a law called the statute of limitations, which puts a time limit on how long an individual has to file a personal injury claim and pursue compensation for their injuries.

According to the Missouri Code section 516.120, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases in the state of Missouri is five years. This means you have five years from the date your injury occurred to file, or you will risk losing your right to do so.

It’s important to note that some exceptions that change this time limit do exist, so it’s very important you speak to an experienced Kansas City personal injury attorney about the details of your claim as soon as you can.

Some examples of these exceptions include:

  • If the injury victim was under the age of 21 at the time of the accident
  • If the alleged negligent party leaves the state before a claim can be filed

The statute of limitations has a big impact on your ability to file a claim so it’s important to speak to an experienced attorney about the specifics of your case as soon as possible. Meyerkord, Russell & Hergott offer free, no-obligation consultations so you have nothing to lose by contacting our firm today!
