When it comes to accidents involving commercial vehicles such as large trucks, the deadline is typically going to be three years to file a claim. However, you do need to be mindful of whether or not that truck is owned by a municipality, whether or not there’s another governmental entity that is responsible for the truck, because that can drastically reduce the amount of time within which you have to bring a claim.
