Truck Accident Statute of Limitations

If you were injured by a truck, truck accident statute of limitations determines how long you have to file. Watch this video and call our attorneys for guidance.

We get calls from clients regarding time frames required to file a truck injury accident claim. Initially you need to know, in New York State, the no-fault application benefits (which covers your medicals, your mileage, and your lost wages) is due within 30 days. A cause of action against a trucking company, the driver, and possibly the truck owner is traditionally three years if they are all private individuals.

There are different time deadlines. For example, if you’re hit by a big postal truck, if it’s a commercial vehicle that’s driven by a state employee or owned by the state, there are also much shorter deadlines. The advice is almost always the same. Although we know of the deadlines, let us cover them for you. You should retain your attorney early on so the deadlines are not your concern.
