Is it important to act quickly after I have been injured?

It is strongly recommended that you act quickly for several reasons. Although the statute of limitations often provides ample time, sometimes injuries or claims are not discovered until a significant portion of the statute of limitations period has already expired. Statutory notice requirements can be missed if there is delay. Other reasons include the fact that accident scenes often need to be investigated quickly, before conditions change; current photographs need to be obtained; important witnesses may need to be interviewed; and witnesses can become hard to locate after the passage of time, or their memories may fade, if there is delay.
