  • Seek immediate medical attention, even if you believe your injuries are minor. Symptoms of certain medical conditions may take days or weeks to surface.
  • Do not admit fault or apologize to anyone, including the police.
  • Do not provide a statement, especially a recorded statement, to any insurance adjuster.

If you fail to file your claim within the applicable time period, you may permanently lose your opportunity to bring a claim. In most cases, you have two years from the date of the accident to file a claim.  However, depending on the specific facts of your case, this time limit, known as the statute of limitations, may differ.
