         There is a time limit on when you can file suit after you know or should have know you were injured.

         Therefore, it is always best to contact a lawyer as soon as you believe you may have a lawsuit because of a personal injury.  Do not assume you have plenty of time, or that the time period has expired since this area is complicated with many rules and exceptions.

         Furthermore, not all torts or claims for personal injuries have the same time periods for filing suit.
