How soon after I am injured do I have to file a lawsuit?

Victims of personal injury have a limited time frame to file a lawsuit against those responsible for their injuries. This time frame is also known as the Statute of Limitations. In Alabama this time frame is typically two (2) years from the date of injury. It is important to call an attorney as soon as possible after being injured so that everything can be done to ensure that all responsible parties are identified and investigated thoroughly before the statute of limitations expires.
