Thank you very much for your patience. A lawsuit can be filed even while waiting for the insurance company to repair the home. Depending on the nature of the lawsuit, a lawsuit can be filed at any time. The only things that bar a lawsuit from being filed is the statute of limitations and any jurisdictional issues.

What other questions did you have for me today that I can help you out with:-)?
