It’s important to do three crucial things after a truck accident. First, document the scene. If you can’t do it, have someone else do it and make a police report. This helps preserve evidence for your case. Second, get medical care immediately. And third, reach out to an attorney who practices in truck accident cases to ensure you are protecting your rights and getting your questions answered.
The areas of compensation can include medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and future medical care. This list is not exhaustive and different people will have different types of compensation so it’s important to consult with an attorney to find out what those are for your particular case.
As soon as possible. Getting an attorney as soon as possible ensures that evidence is saved and protected and helps guide you through the process to avoid pitfalls.
Generally, the answer is two years from the date of the accident. However, there are certain cases where there are exceptions. For example, if you are hit with a government truck, you need to make a claim with the governmental entity within six months. So, because there are different statutes of limitations for different types of cases, you should always consult with a personal injury attorney so you don’t inadvertently waive your rights!
There is no black-and-white answer to this question. There are many factors that determine how long any particular case takes. Those factors include how long you received medical care, liability, and reasonable settlement offers. It’s important to hire a personal injury attorney that knows the defenses to these types of cases and how to rebut them.
