In conclusion to our three-part blog Truck Accident Lawsuit FAQs, here are some more answers to commonly asked questions prospective plaintiffs have when they may be thinking about filing truck accident lawsuits. For more specific information and advice regarding your case, don’t hesitate to contact the Denver truck accident attorneys at the Warshauer-McLaughlin Law Group.
Q – Is there a time limit for filing my case?
A – Yes. These time limits are known as statutes of limitations, and they differ from state to state. In Colorado, the statute of limitations for filing truck accident lawsuits is two years from the date of the accident. In other words, accident victims will have two years from the date on which the accident occurred to file their case. If they wait too long and try to file truck accident lawsuits after this two-year time limit has passed, they will lose their rights to seek compensation for their injuries and losses.
Q – How soon after my truck accident should I meet with a lawyer?
A – As soon as you can. The sooner that you are able to meet with an attorney and get your case started, the stronger your case will likely be. This is because it will usually be easier to track down the witnesses to the accident, compile the various bills associated with the accident, etc.
The longer you wait to consult with a lawyer, the more likely it is that such critical evidence will get lost or otherwise become unavailable, which could affect the amount of compensation you are ultimately able to obtain.
Q – What should I bring when I go to an initial consult?
A – Any documents or evidence associated with the accident that you have. Specifically, bring any and all of the following if you have them available:
- Photos of the accident
- Documents from any insurer associated with the accident
- Contact info for the witnesses of the accident
- Medical bills for any treatments you have received for your truck accident injuries
- Copies of the police report for the accident.
If you don’t have any or all of this potential evidence, don’t worry – we can help gather it for you in order to build you the strongest possible case.
