There isn’t a cut-and-dry solution for every 18-wheeler truck accident case, but if you are involved in a truck accident, gathering evidence and consulting a lawyer about the crash can be an excellent place to start. In states in the U.S., there is a time frame for how long injury victims have to file a claim. This time frame, or “Statute of Limitations,” varies from state-to-state, which can make it difficult to figure out what your state’s laws are for filing an insurance claim.
