Catastrophic Injury FAQ
- When should I speak with a lawyer after my catastrophic injury accident?
The sooner you can get an attorney to help with your catastrophic injury case, the better. Important evidence to show who was liable for your accident will become more difficult to find and utilize as time passes. Some evidence could be strictly time-sensitive, like security camera footage that is erased automatically every week or month. As soon as you are healthy enough to make a phone call, you should reach out to a trusted legal team about what to do next. You can also ask a family member to make the first call if that is easier.
- What happens to the case if my loved one dies after filing a catastrophic injury lawsuit?
When a loved one passes away after their catastrophic injury case begins, it is not the end of the lawsuit. The claim can still move forward as a survival action, rather than a personal injury claim. The premises behind the case will remain the same, though, such as the need for proving that the defendant was liable for what happened to the late plaintiff. If the case is a success, then the monetary award or settlement money will be paid to the deceased party’s estate.
- How much time do I have to file a catastrophic injury lawsuit?
In Arkansas, you have three years to file a catastrophic injury claim before the state’s statute of limitations. Once three years have passed, any claims you file afterward can and most likely will be dismissed by the court before they gain momentum. The statute of limitations begins on the date that the catastrophic injury occurred or when it should have been reasonably noticeable, such as when cancer caused by toxic chemical exposure is first diagnosed.
