If you've been hurt, you may be wondering if you have a personal injury case, and if so, what you can do about it.
What To Do About Your Personal Injury CaseThe first thing to keep in mind is that Ohio has a two year statute of limitations for personal injury negligence cases, and a one year statute of limitations for medical malpractice. That means if you don't bring your personal injury case within two years of being injured, then you can't bring it at all. You only have one year from the date of injury to bring a medical malpractice case.
The most important thing you can do to help your personal injury case is to go to your doctor in order to get your injuries fully evaluated and diagnosed and then follow your doctor's orders for the treatment of your injuries. There are many times when someone gets hurt in an accident and then calls an attorney to see what their case is worth and then the attorney will come to find out that the victim never went to the doctor. If you did not think your injuries were serious enough to see a doctor, then an insurance company is not going to think your injuries are serious enough to compensate you for it.
