The statute of limitations in Wyoming for personal injury claims is 4 years after the incident. This means that four years to the day after your accident, you lose the legal right to file a claim for the injuries you suffered. There can be exceptions, however, for situations in which an injury was not discovered until later or if the victim was a minor at the time. Generally speaking, it is good to call a personal injury attorney as soon as you can, so they have adequate time to negotiate your claim.
Following an accident, it's important you prioritize your health and recovery first. Being in good health should be your biggest priority, during your recovery, the injury attorneys at Metier Law Firm will help assist in handling your accident claim. In the events after your accident, the following includes a breakdown of the best steps to take:
Regardless of the injury, you should try to distance yourself from further harm if possible. Whether your injury was caused by a car accident, truck accident, or an industrial accident; staying out of harm’s way will lessen your chances of a second injury.
The more documentation provided of both the scene of your accident and your injuries sustained, the better chances your claim will have. Once you are out of danger, take pictures or video of the scene that will later become crucial evidence in your case.
Even if you think the injuries you sustained are minor, it is crucial you seek medical attention. Some internal injuries may not be apparent at first, but can later turn out to be serious or even fatal. Getting checked out by a doctor ensures your health, and will give you peace of mind, not to mention an official medical report.
Evidence includes any pictures or video taken of the scene, clothing, jewelry or shoes worn when injured, witness statements, etc. It may be some time before any of it is presented in court or at a negotiation, so store everything somewhere secure until you can consult with your lawyer about how best to deal with it.

Personal injuries can happen in countless ways; however,if they are due to the negligence of another, you are entitled to compensation to pay for your expenses. Proving negligence is a complicated process, which makes having a personal injury lawyer on your side all the more important. Our dedicated attorneys know the ins and outs of Wyoming law with over 30 years of helping victims and their families across the state.
Injury victims can receive compensation for many different incurred costs. These incurred costs fall into two categories: Special Damages or General Damages. Special Damages include damages that are easily measured or calculated. General Damages are more open to interpretation, as they include costs to the victim that are less tangible, like a drop in their quality of life.

It depends, largely on the severity of your injuries and the willingness of the insurance company to settle with you. Some cases can be finished in a matter of weeks, while others drag on for years, but a strong case and a good personal injury attorney tend to speed the process up.
Yes, as soon as possible. Insurance companies will often use any delay in seeking medical attention as an excuse to discredit a personal injury claim. Furthermore, some life-threatening injuries like hairline fractures, can go undetected by a victim, so its a good idea to see your doctor just to be safe.
It can vary widely. Because every accident is different, every personal injury case is different, so the amounts awarded to victims will be different, too.
