Is There a Deadline for me to Bring a Claim?

If law to law governs, there's going to be a statutory period of time within which you must bring the claim, and you have to bring the claim, not only within that period of time, but you have to bring the claim in the proper court and within the proper period of time or you lose your right to pursue the case. You can file late, but the first thing the other side is going to do is file a motion to dismiss for a personal injury plaintiff failure to timely file the lawsuit. The same applies in maritime cases. Accidents that happen beyond a certain distance from the shore, those types of cases are going to be governed by maritime law.

If it's a crew member case, the claim better be brought within three years. Client shouldn't be a victim twice, they really should try to find a lawyer competent in that field and find out one of the things beyond their skill and expertise. One of the things is, by when do I need to bring this lawsuit in order for their rights to be protected? Lawyers specializing in the field that governs your claim will know that and protect your rights.

After my accident I contacted them right away. I was able to see them the same day and was kept in contact throughout the process. Everyone in the office was very accommodating, polite and professional. I highly recommend Brais Law and think very highly of their lead attorneys. They helped me WIN my case, and I am forever grateful. They went above and beyond to assist me. Thank you all so very much. H.S.

The entire law firm of Brais Law were extremely helpful in handling my snorkeling accident. The firm takes customer service to a new level, not only being readily available, but courteous, respectful, sympathetic, and empathetic. The firm, especially Keith and Karla, were always quick to return calls, offer updates, and provide guidance and information. There is no comparison when it comes to firms. If you need legal advice or representation, especially concerning maritime events, contact Keith and his crew first and save yourself a lot of time and heartache! J.C.

I was looking to refer a client injured on a cruise ship and had the pleasure of speaking to Keith. Keith was extremely helpful and he took time out of his day to provide some guidance. If you're looking for a Admiralty & Maritime /Personal Injury Lawyer in Florida, I would highly recommend Brais Law Firm! T.C.
