Time limit to file a Hyden personal injury claim
We recommend that you get started on your case as soon as possible. The Kentucky statute of limitations for personal injury claims and wrongful death claims are both one year from the date of injury or death. This means that claims that are not filed within this one-year period will likely be dismissed by the court, leaving victims and family members unable to recover the compensation they are entitled to.
