When you have an injury claim against the bus company, you will want to know how much time you have to make your claim or file a lawsuit. In Nevada, the statute of limitations for personal injuries is two years. You have two years in which to settle your claim or to file a lawsuit. If you haven’t filed your lawsuit or settled your claim before two years, on the two-year anniversary date of that collision, you will have lost all of your opportunity or chance to get compensated, unless you were under 18 at the time of the collision. That’s a different set of circumstances. If you are an adult, you have two years.

Just because you have two years, doesn’t mean you should wait till the end. In a bus accident or bus collision, investigation and preservation of evidence is absolutely critical. If you’ve been injured in a bus accident claim, you need to hire an attorney right away. They have to take immediate steps to conduct an investigation and place the bus company and its insurance carrier on notice. If you don’t do that early on, a lot of critical evidence has been lost or could be lost. Even though you have two years to file the lawsuit, do not think that you have two years to contact an attorney.
