How to File a Lawsuit against a Trucking Company

About The Author

Other Articles by the Author

Being involved in a truck accident can lead to serious medical problems, as well as the loss of income, so it may be necessary to file a personal injury lawsuit against the trucking company responsible for your accident.

In some cases, it may be possible to receive a fair settlement without going to court; however, in other cases, litigation may be required.

Before signing any documents provided by the trucking company’s insurance provider, it is important to speak with a qualified truck accident attorney. The small print on the document will most likely prevent you from seeking future damages later on. It is better to seek legal counsel first than to realize you have backed yourself into a corner.

Each state has a statute of limitations regarding when the truck accident lawsuit may be filed. Typically, you will have 2 years from the date of the trucking accident to file a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.

Hiring an experienced truck accident attorney is an important step in filing a personal injury lawsuit.

Many truck accident attorneys take cases on a contingency basis, with no upfront payment required. The attorney will take a percentage of your settlement, which can range from 20-40% based on the difficulty of your case.
