You ask two different questions, which I will address separately. Question 1: Is there a statute of limitation for filing personal injury? The answer is yes there are statute of limitations for filing a personal injury case. A "statute of limitations" is a deadline imposed by law by which you must either have your case resolved or have a lawsuit on file or you would be barred from receiving money for your injuries and damages. There are different statutes of limitations for different types of cases. In addition, there are additional time limitation and other requirements for cases involving the government (federal, state, county, city), governmental agencies, political subdivisions and their employees. The statute of limitations is also extended for minors and persons under certain disabilities. You should contact an attorney to determine the exact statute of limitations for your particular case. Question 2: How do I have to push for personal injury? I do not know what you mean by this question. If you mean how do you collect money from a personal injury case there are numerous things you may or will have to do. However, a short answer is that you, assuming the person causing your injury was insured, communicate with the insurance company and try to settle the case. If you cannot get it settled for an amount you would accept, then a lawsuit must be filed and the case determined by a judge or jury at a trial.
