In Indiana, you have two years to file a claim for personal injuries after you turn 18. If you have already filed a claim and an attorney is in the process of finalizing your claim, I would contact their office directly.

You need to contact the attorney to check the status of the suit. Because you were a minor the case may have been resolved and your parents would have signed for you. This is something your attorney would know, so speak with the attorney.
