Fighting For Truck Accident Injury Victims
Trucking companies have extensive resources to devote to defending against injury lawsuits. They will likely send a team of investigators to the scene of the accident to search for evidence that limits their liability. Their insurance companies push to limit or outright deny compensation to personal injury victims. The injured victim needs a strong advocate to even the playing field.
The Rodriguez Legal Group LLC has been that advocate for numerous truck accident injury victims and for those who have lost loved ones in fatal truck accidents. Experience counts in a trucking accident case. The Rodriguez Legal Group LLC has the experience and investigative resources to obtain the evidence that points to negligence and wrongdoing on the part of truck drivers and trucking companies. We are prepared to help you pursue fair and just compensation for the losses you have suffered due to a truck accident injury.
Statute of Limitations For Truck Accidents in Illinois
The term “statute of limitations” refers to how long you have from the date of your accident to bring a claim seeking compensation for your damages and injuries. In Illinois, your statute of limitations is 2 years from the date of your accident.
We certainly hope that you reach out to our truck accident attorneys much sooner than 2 years because these cases can be time-sensitive, meaning you can miss out on having success if you wait too long to reach out and get started. The evidence on the scene can be cleaned up or go missing very quickly. Your witnesses can forget key details of your case right away after the accident, and the sooner you get their contact information to your attorneys the better off your case will be when they have important information that can help you and your claim.
If you were to try to bring your claim past the 2 year deadline of statute of limitation, then you would be unable to receive justice for this wrongdoing. This is a hard deadline with no exceptions. Don’t wait right before the statute of limitations runs out. The Rodriguez Legal Group LLC. might not be able to help you because they will not have sufficient time to build you a strong case. We can get started on your case very quickly after you are involved in an accident. We urge you to reach out as soon as you possibly can, even if you were still in the hospital bed getting treatment. We understand that justice takes time and we want as much time as we can to work on your case and get you that justice.
