A personal injury and wrongful death law firm representing injured people and families of lost loved ones

The attorneys at Coffman Law Offices are skilled at handling any type of personal injury or wrongful death suit.  They have learned that no matter what kind of injuries you are suffering from, time is critical.  It is urgent that you hire an attorney to guide you through the legal process of filing a lawsuit at the earliest possible convenience.  It is essential that vital evidence from the accident scene is preserved, that witnesses are located, and that other information is recorded and maintained to prove fault and responsibility if you do decide to pursue litigation. 

In addition, the time frame within which you can file a case to recover money damages for your injuries is governed by a statute of limitations.  In most states, the statute of limitations is two years.  This gives you only twenty-four months from the date of your accident to file a claim.  If you fail to do so, your case will be permanently barred, and you will no longer be able to recover any compensation.
