We Need to File a Suit Quickly After Your Sarasota Truck Accident
Under Florida’s statute of limitations, there is a time limit on how quickly we need to act to recover a payout in this type of case. If we do not file a lawsuit by the time this date passes, you could lose the right to take any legal action against the driver or trucking company in the future. It is imperative that we do not miss this deadline.
At the same time, truck accident cases are difficult to investigate and proving your case may be complicated. Much of the evidence we require to build a strong case is in the possession of the trucking company. This evidence may be in danger of being lost or destroyed if we do not take swift action to preserve it. The potential of evidence loss is another reason it pays to go to work quickly after a trucking accident in Sarasota.
