Typically you have 30 days to file.
What type of claim? Damage or injury?
Most claims need to be filed within a year of the occurrence.

Each state has different time periods of filing an insurance claim after an accident. Check with you state to make sure you do not miss the filing period.
You need to contact your local police department. Once you have a police report, you can file your insurance claim.
Insurance polices and carriers differ. A person would need to contact their insurance company to see how long they have to file a claim. In Oregon, a person has up to 10 years to file a personal injury lawsuit in court for a car accident.
You have 2 years to take him to small claims court to recover your damages.
You must do this right away.
One would think that a claim should be filed as soon as possible - why someone would deliberately wait for weeks and weeks to file the claim creates questions about the validity of such claims.
the ''CAN'' if it's been too long, most don't file it NOW !!!
