You have 2 years from the date of your accident.  For example, if you had a wreck with an eighteen-wheeler on April 15, 2022, you would have to file a lawsuit on or before April 15, 2024, or your lawsuit would be time barred.  However, you should never delay contacting a Birmingham truck accident lawyer immediately after your wreck.  If the wreck resulted in serious injuries or death, the insurance company for the trucking company will have investigators out at the scene immediately.  If your lawyer does not have the opportunity to conduct an investigation soon after the wreck, valuable evidence will probably be lost or changed.  If you have any questions, call the truck accident lawyers at Gathings Law, (205) 322-1201.
