Re: auto accident

The statute of limitations (time you have to file a lawsuit) is two years but this does not apply while the injured person is a minor (under 18). You should consult an attorney because the insurance adjuster is not on your side. Feel free to contact me if I may be of assistance.

Re: auto accident

Please tell me that you have consulted an atorney to assist in this matter and are seeking a 2nd opinion.

You don't have to settle by this date if a law suit has been filed with the court.

If we can help, let us know, services at a reasonable fee.
