Why You Should Not Wait to Hire Us
Your case may be subject to a statute of limitations. These are deadlines that generally apply to personal injury cases. Insurance claims may also have important deadlines.
The Ohio Revised Code Section 2305.10 generally limits the time to file a personal injury case to two years from the date of the injury. There can be exceptions to this statute, so you should call our firm no matter when your injury happened.
The risks of waiting too long to connect with a lawyer with us include:
- Your case becoming ineligible based on statutes of limitations
