How Long do I Have to Sue the At-Fault Parties?
While you could have up to 24 months to sue for damages suffered in your collision, we recommend contacting us about your case as soon as possible. Per Ala. Code § 6-2-38, accident victims generally have two years to sue the liable parties for personal injury or wrongful death. However, exceptions exist and can reduce the time you can wait significantly.
Letting our team review your case in the first weeks following your crash will help you know what to expect and may allow us to get started on your claim sooner. We can identify witnesses and recover evidence—two keys to building a strong case for compensation.
Understanding the Causes of Your Mobile T-Bone Collision
T-bone accidents, also called side-impact crashes, usually occur when one vehicle ignores a traffic signal or sign or fails to yield to oncoming traffic in an intersection.
When a heavy truck collides with a smaller car, those in the car are in immense danger of serious injury. This is especially true when the truck impacts the vehicle’s side, where there is less material to absorb the forces created by the crash.
Who You Can Sue for Your Truck Accident
If we can show that the truck driver caused the accident by running a red light, failing to stop at a stop sign, or not yielding when appropriate, we can build an argument against the liable parties, which could include:
- The truck driver
- The trucker’s employer, often a trucking company or large corporation
Holding the driver’s employer vicariously liable is possible in Alabama. Our team from
the Morris Bart law office in Mobile knows how to apply case law to truck accidents and can help you show that the trucking company is vicariously liable for your accident.
