Lawyer Tips: Statutes of Limitation Are Gone Before You Know It

As all lawyers and clients know, the statute of limitation is the essential window within which you must file your personal injury lawsuit to protect your rights. What many clients may not know is that municipal corporations and some government entities have shortened notice and statute of limitation periods (745 ILCS 10/1 Section 101 et seq.). This means that people who have been injured in a train accident, bus accident, truck accident, and government operated hospital injuries should check to see if a shortened statute applies to their case. It is very important that a client talk to their personal injury attorney soon after being injured to make sure that there is still time to file a personal injury lawsuit.
