While there are many details about any car accident lawsuit that are important when resolving the case, the first detail you need to remember are the filing deadlines for car accident claims in Alabama. If you don’t get your lawsuit filed before the state-mandated deadline, you will be unable to recover damages no matter how badly you were hurt.
Nuances of the filing deadline are also important to understand. As Long & Long attorney Earle Long mentions in the video below, there are two different filing deadlines in Alabama for adults and minors. Adults have two years from the time of the accident, whereas minors can file until the day they turn 21. Learn more in the video:
