Unfortunately, justice is not automatic. Certain steps are required to protect your rights, and failure to take those actions can result in the loss of your right to make a claim. So proceeding without legal advice can be very risky.
Please keep in mind that various time deadlines or "Statutes of Limitations" apply to all legal matters. These limitations mean that if certain actions (such as giving proper notice or filing suit, to name a few) are not taken within applicable time periods, you can lose valuable legal rights, including your right to pursue a claim. Time deadlines in insurance policies may also affect your rights. Only an attorney who very closely examines your situation can determine exactly what time limitations apply to a particular legal matter. Therefore, you should always consult an attorney promptly to learn about your rights and any time deadlines that may apply.
