Although it’s possible your lawyer may recommend a delay in filing your claim, typically they will suggest you begin the process as soon as possible, even if you only suspect the occurrence of negligence or malpractice. The following are some of the many reasons your knowledgeable attorney will immediately get to work on your case:

  1. Typically, the deadlines established by the statute of limitations and statute of repose cannot be extended. Although in some states a judge may extend the period to file a claim when given a valid reason, you should not rely on this happening. In the majority of cases, filing just one day past the deadline will result in denial of your claim.
  2. Insurance companies will often only concern themselves with cases that have filed a claim. In the instance that you don’t file, they’ll consider it an empty threat and disregard your case.
  3. Gathering the necessary evidence and expert testimony takes time for your attorney. And it is important that all the pertinent facts are uncovered. For example, a woman in Utah suffered an injury to her sciatic nerve. She waited to contact an attorney until just before her deadline approached. Her attorney quickly filed suit against her surgeon. However, once her attorney received her medical records, he realized a hospital employee was to blame. By this time, the deadline to file a claim against the hospital had passed and the woman was not able to recover for her injury.
  4. Certain states will not even allow patients to obtain their own medical records, including x-rays, until a lawsuit has been filed. These records may be necessary to build a negligence case against your healthcare provider.
  5. Memories fade and records get lost over time. It is important to record witness testimony and gather records as soon as possible to ensure all pertinent information has been included in your negligence claim.
  6. Over time, scars and wounds heal and you become accustomed to your injury. But it is easier for juries to sympathize with someone whose injuries are apparent and whose pain and suffering is clear.
  7. Many claims never even make it to trial and are settled beforehand. However, these negotiations can take time. Your attorney will want to make sure your claim is “in the pipeline” in order to ensure your trial can progress without delay in case negotiations fail.
