Truck Accident Settlement Timeline

If you are seeking compensation after a commercial vehicle crash, you may have questions about the truck accident settlement timeline in North Augusta.


How long will it take to resolve my truck accident case in North Augusta?


I had a young nurse call me after she was injured on University Parkway in Aiken, South Carolina by a tractor trailer that had run a red light. Her question to me was how long it would take to resolve her case. If you’re reading this, you might have the same question. I’ll share with you what I shared with this young lady.

Truck Accident Settlement TimelineTruck Accident Settlement TimelineEvery case is different, but some of the factors involved in the length of a case are how long the medical treatment lasts, what kind of limitations you have once you’ve healed up, and whether the trucking insurance company is acting reasonable in the negotiations of the case. What does the evidence in the case show as to liability? What does the black box recorder show as to the speed of the truck at the time of the wreck? What does the black box recorder show as to the brakes of the wreck from the tractor trailer? Lastly, there may be cameras in the tractor trailer that actually record the wreck itself, and those may give clues to who’s at fault, and that will determine how long the case goes.

The statute of limitations in South Carolina is three years, and the case would need to either be settled or a lawsuit be filed within that time. If you have any questions about your truck accident, give us a call. We’d be happy to help.
