3 Myths about Waiting to File a Claim
A motorcycle accident can leave you injured, emotionally distressed, and uncertain about your future. When you are forced to deal with damage to your motorcycle, medical treatment, and your insurance company, you may be able to pursue financial compensation from the party who caused your accidents. A successful legal action can help you to obtain the resources you need to address medical bills, lost wages, and other damages. It is important that you understand what the statute of limitations is and how it pertains to filing a lawsuit.

Common Errors That Could Cost You
To pursue a personal injury case, it is important to ensure that you do not delay action until the point at which the statute of limitations expires. The following misconceptions related to the statute of limitations could prove to be costly:
- I can file for a personal injury lawsuit whenever I want – in Wisconsin, you must file within the statute of limitations, which is typically three years after the injury.
- I can’t file for a personal injury lawsuit because I just realized I have an injury and it is too late – according to the so-called Discovery Rule, the timing for the statute of limitations does not begin until the discovery of the injury
- The statue of limitations is the same for every case – the statute of limits tends to be the same for cases of a similar nature, but it may vary according to the particular circumstances.
It is important to ensure that you are properly advised of your legal rights and that you have passionately committed legal representation as you seek financial compensation for your injuries.
