There are many types of personal injury cases, each the responsibility of different people, each having a different amount of time you have to file your suit. Deciding when you should approach a lawyer about your case and getting legal representation needs careful consideration and research.
All of these types of injury cases have one thing in common, which is negligence. When people get lazy and sloppy, their negligence begins to affect others; often times, ending up in someone getting hurt.
In most cases, you have up to three years to file your case in court. However, when you are filing a claim again the government, government agency, or workplace, you usually have between 120-365 days to file your claim. In general, you should file your case as soon as you feel you have been injured by some one else's negligence. Waiting does nothing to help your case.
Deciding whether or not your case is substantial enough to file suit is up to you. If you have been seriously injured, and are going to need long term care, you should hire a lawyer. If you believe that the type of accident you were in could affect someone else, for example a poorly built building, you should file suit to prevent others from getting hurt.
