Hi. I was involved in a motor vehicle accident on July 04, 2017. Me, my wife, my daughter, and my brother in law were in Uber cab and were hit by another vehicle. I have not filed a case till now and wanted to know whether it is possible to file a case now?

Yes you can file the case now. Only thing is when the court decides to award compensation with interest, the days from accident till the date of filling of case will be excluded since there has been a considerable delay.
