In many cases, there is a six-month window after the accident or after the subsequent death to file a notice of claim against a state or local entity. In federal claims, the statute of limitations runs longer, but it is always in your best interests to talk to an attorney as soon as possible to protect your rights and preserve evidence and witness accounts important to your case.
