Car Accidents in Texas
Every year, innocent people are hurt as a result of car crashes in Texas. In fact, these accidents take place so often that hundreds of people end up suffering injuries every single day due to collisions. When a victim suffered serious injuries in an automobile accident, they often face significant financial burdens. Many victims are left with tens of thousands of dollars in medical care costs while being unable to work and earn an income.
In order to help cope with some of the mental, physical, and emotional consequences of automobile accidents, victims are encouraged to take legal action by filing personal injury lawsuits. A personal injury claim can help injured parties recover all of the compensation they need for medical costs, now and in the future, and a variety of other damages. It is imperative to file a claim within the statute of limitations to ensure you are able to protect your rights.
What is the Statute of Limitations?
In Texas, claimants are required to file a legal claim within two years from the date of the cause of action. While a two-year timeframe stands as the standard statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Texas, there are a few exceptions that exist.
For example, claimants pursuing legal action against a government entity must do so within six months from the date of the accident, deviating from the standard two-year personal injury statute of limitations. Working with a knowledgeable Texas personal injury attorney can assist in ascertaining the applicable time frame for filing a claim in the aftermath of your accident.
