How long do I have to contact a lawyer after the truck accident?
All accident claims are governed by a statute of limitations. A statute of limitation is a time limit by which a claim must be filed. In most states, this statute of limitations is two years from the time of the accident or, in some cases, two years from the time the injury caused by the accident was discovered. However, in truck accident cases, it is extremely important to seek legal counsel as soon as possible after the accident. This is because vital evidence, such as the truck driver’s logs and documents detailing the maintenance of the vehicle, must be collected in order to ensure the strongest case possible. The more time that passes, the more difficult it will become for even the most experienced attorneys to obtain this evidence.
