When a person is injured in an automobile accident or a slip and fall, it takes time to mentally and physically recover. However, it is important to be aware that the law provides time limits for which a personal injury claim may be filed against the defendant in order to recover compensation for your injuries.  If the statute of limitations has expired, then a plaintiff will be precluded from filing an action to recover damages.
