Question:

Is there a deadline in Florida for filing a trucking accident lawsuit?

Answer:

Statute of Limitations to File a Truck Accident LawsuitSometimes people ask how much time they have to sue someone in a trucking accident case. The answer is four years. The general rule is four years, but having said that, don’t wait. If you wait, only bad things can happen. Witnesses disappear, evidence disappears, damage to the tractor-trailer or truck get repaired, damage to your car gets repaired, or if your car is totaled, it gets taken by the insurance company, crushed, and sold, and you never see it again. Memory fades.

All of those things tell us not to wait. It’s like tying your lawyer’s hands behind his back and expecting him to do as good a job. One of the lawyer’s jobs is to preserve evidence. The sooner you get to a lawyer, the better he is able to get out to that wrecker yard and take pictures of your automobile, run down witnesses who may run away, preserve other types of evidence that might be relevant. Yes, you have four years, but don’t wait. Call immediately.

If you’ve been heart in Northeast Florida, in Nassau County, Duval County, other outlying Northeast Florida counties, or Southeast Georgia, call us immediately. We’ll sit down with you, go over your case, preserve that evidence that will be so important later on so that we can get the maximum value out of your case.
