Get Legal Support After A Serious Car, Truck Or Motorcycle Accident
When a vehicle accident causes a serious or fatal injury, you and your family will need compensation to cover medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
Without legal representation, however, it is very unlikely that you will recover the amount of compensation you need. As an individual, you will have little chance against the insurance company’s team of lawyers.

How long do I have to file a claim?
To be eligible for compensation through your auto insurance’s personal injury protection (PIP) and MedPay, you must have gotten medical treatment within two weeks of an accident.

If your family member died in a fatal crash, the statute of limitations is two years.
