As a bystander to a truck accident in which your relative was physically injured, you might be able to demand compensation for negligent infliction of emotional distress (NIED).
The general statute of limitations deadline to file a lawsuit over a Washington state truck accident claim is three years after the date of the accident. If someone died in the accident, the estate executor generally has until three years after the date of death to bring a personal injury claim.
However, there are exceptions to these time limits. Our legal team can help you confirm the appropriate deadline for your specific case.
Dump truck accidents generate unique challenges, including the following:
