A long time has passed since my accident. Can I still bring a claim for damages?

There is a time limit to file a lawsuit. This is called a statute of limitations which imposes a time limit to sue in certain cases. These statutes vary depending on the type of claim involved. You may wish to contact a lawyer to advise you regarding how such statutes affect your claim. To find a lawyer, you can call the South Carolina Bar Lawyer Referral Service at 1-800-868-2284 or 803-799-7100.
