Once the proceedings are initiated, there is no time limit on settling your claim. Each year at the Law Offices of Paul Snow, people call me to ask me for help that have legitimate cases only to find out that their statute of limitations has run out.

One of the worst decisions individuals can make is to negotiate directly with trucking companies, insurance adjusters, or the trucking company lawyers. Most trucking companies are highly skilled at truck accident investigation and claims. Anything you say or sign may be held against you further down the road. When truck accidents occur, trucking companies often send their own representatives to accident scenes to pressure accident victims when they are most vulnerable. You need someone on your side. Do you know your rights? Large trucking companies have their own investigators and attorneys fighting for them. You need someone on your side, fighting for you.
