Yes, in Nevada they can sue you up to 2 years from the date of the accident. I suggest that you turn the matter over to your employer, and notify your personal insurance company.

In Alabama, you have two years from the accident to sue. Turn the papers over to your insurance company. They will assign you a lawyer to defend you and they will pay any settlement or judgment up to the limits of the policy. Good luck.
