    I was hurt falling into a ditch. How long do I have to file a claim?

    I was taking pictures and as I turned to make a step I fell into a drainage ditch on my property. How long does a person have to file a personal injury claim?

    Typically you have 2 years from the date of the accident or from the date of discovery to file a claim. That time can be longer depending on where you live. Find out more about statutes of limitations here.
