Arizona law generally allows two (2) years from the date of an accident to file a lawsuit, but there are exceptions to this. Government owned truck? Your deadline may only be 180 days from the date of the crash.
Were you in the scope of employment when the crash occurred? You may only have 1 year. Any minors hurt? Generally, a minor’s time to file is 2 years from the date they turn 18.
Calculating the time frame for the trucking accident you were in can be tricky. If you are wrong, your claim could be barred forever. It is absolutely best (and sometimes needed) to consult with an experienced Phoenix trucking accident lawyer right away to ensure evidence is preserved, and to ensure that your case is filed in a timely manner.
