Does a filing deadline apply to a claim when someone has died?

Updated March 13, 2023.

Yes. In fact, there are several different time limits that apply in any death claim. The rules in applying these time limits can be tricky and shorter than the time limits for other types of claims. It is important to contact an experienced personal injury attorney who knows how to apply these time limits as soon as possible. Lacy Katzen LLP’s personal injury attorneys can help you determine if you should pursue a claim.
