Question: How long do I have to file a truck accident claim?

Answer:

In Texas, if you’ve been seriously injured because of an 18-wheeler or a commercial vehicle of some sort, technically you have two years to take action. That’s called the statute of limitation. Texas law says is if you are injured, you need to file a lawsuit no later than two years, but you need to understand something: every day you wait is a day that some piece of evidence might be missing.
