How much time do I have after a trucking accident to file a lawsuit? | Shapiro, Washburn & Sharp

Every state contains “statutes of limitation,” which determine the amount of time you have to file a personal injury lawsuit. This deadline is important since if you miss it, your claim will be dismissed. The window of opportunity starts from the date of the accident. To determine how much time you have to file your suit, contact Shapiro & Appleton& Duffan immediately and we discuss the pertinent details of your case.

Even if there is an extended period of time before a lawsuit has to be filed, that does not mean you should wait to contact an attorney. There are many details that need to be dealt with as quickly as possible. For example, you want to document your injuries, secure evidence, identify possible responsible persons, and determine insurance policy coverage along with policy limits as soon as you can.
