How long do I have to file a personal injury claim?
In the event of an injury accident, our Des Moines personal injury attorneys urge you to seek counsel as soon as possible. The Iowa statute of limitations determines the length of time in which an individual can file a claim for monetary and non-monetary damages; if the time limit expires, you are permanently barred or prevented from your right to seek compensation. Even if the time for filing a claim is months away, it is important to seek legal counsel as soon as possible so that the personal injury lawyer handling your case has adequate time to investigate the matter and prepare for filing a claim or lawsuit. At our Des Moines law office, a personal injury lawyer can review your case and determine whether you are still eligible to file a claim.
