If you’ve been involved in a truck accident, you may need to hire a truck accident lawyer. A good truck accident lawyer can help you recover losses resulting from a motor vehicle accident and/or reduce the large amount of paperwork and hassle often associated with truck accident insurance claims.
The deadline for filing personal injury claims varies from state to state. Because you may need to pay for medical bills and/or cover lost wages, the sooner you contact an attorney the better. In general, a person should contact an attorney shortly after the accident occurs, within a week or two of the accident, but before reaching a settlement with the insurance company.
