When someone is seriously injured in a commercial vehicle accident, it’s important to understand that there is a statute of limitations. There is a specific, finite amount of time you have to bring a case and an action. Even more so depending on whether that vehicle was owned by a municipality, the state, the city, or truck company, you have even stricter timelines. In general, it’s important to immediately seek out counsel to make sure your rights are being protected, and to make sure all these nuances are being followed.
There’s also certain rules with respect to no-fault applications which would protect your rights to make sure your medical bills and lost wages are paid. Those have their own set of guidelines, and you have to have an attorney like us who specifically knows these guidelines, who’s experienced in handling these cases, and who makes a large part of their practice just doing these type of cases. It’s important to not waste time, to seek out counsel, and to make sure all these guidelines are being followed properly.
