Were you involved in a truck accident in South Carolina and have questions about how long you have to file a claim and what steps to take to protect your rights and maximize your compensation?

So in South Carolina, if it’s a normal, everyday truck with a commercial policy of $1 million, you have three years to file your claim. If, say, for instance, it’s a truck that’s owned by the city of Georgetown or Horry County or Charleston County or the city of Charleston, you have two years because of Tort Claims Act. Or if you’re riding in a company truck and someone else is driving, and they get in a wreck, the worker’s comp act states that you have two years to bring your claim. But the main issue for all this is, why wait? You need to hire me as your lawyer as soon as you can to pursue your interest because it’s going to be a lot easier for me. And most likely, at the end of the day, you’re going to get a lot more money for your claim.
