How long does it take for a truck accident case to get resolved?
If you’ve been involved in an auto accident, remember that there is a statute of limitations (a time-limit to file your case), and in Illinois the statute is two (2) years. If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident involving a large truck due to negligence, we at Agruss Law Firm are here for you every step of the way to ensure that your rights are protected and you are fully compensated for your injuries and losses, and this includes working with the insurance company on your behalf to ensure a favorable settlement.
Truck accident cases can vary greatly, and the more severe the accident or injuries, the more time your claim may take, often due to ongoing medical treatment and the need for depositions from eyewitnesses as well as expert witnesses. Some are settled in a matter of months, while others – particularly those involving a wrongful death – may take one year or longer to resolve.
Here are some things you can do to help ensure that your truck accident claim is resolved in an efficient and timely manner:
- Cease all communication with the at-fault driver and his/her representatives;
- Collect all records, receipts, and similar documentation related to the accident, including for medical expenses, property damage, and lost wages;
- Contact your employer to inform them of the accident and request income-verification;
- Make a list of all parties involved in the accident and any important details or memories;
- Maintain open communication and availability with your personal injury attorney at all times.
