Can I hurt my injured child’s lawsuit if I delay hiring a lawyer
Answer: Yes, we prefer to bring a case not long after the incident because witnesses’ memories are sharper and deeper and they are not as likely to have moved away. In addition, we want all the evidence to be as fresh as possible. Over time evidence can get lost or degrade. Nothing good comes from delaying the bringing of a lawsuit. That is one important reason our justice system imposes statutes of limitation. Florida child injury attorneys do not want to go to trial in the pursuit of justice if the evidence is low quality and witnesses’ memories are fuzzy.
