How long can I wait before I make a claim?
Every state has what’s called a statute of limitations, which stipulates how long a person can wait before filing a particular legal claim against another person or entity. In Kentucky, the statute of limitations is 1 year for a personal injury claim. If another person has caused you injury and you are thinking about legal action, you must file a legal claim within this time period, except in certain circumstances. This makes it critical to speak with a legal representative as soon as possible. If you would like to speak to a lawyer about legal claims, call Sampson Law Firm at (502) 584-5050.
