Car Accidents in Texas
Every year in our state, tens of thousands of people are hospitalized with injuries as a result of accidents that take place on our roadways. Far too often, these accidents are a result of negligence. We see many people hospitalized as a result of speeding motorists, drivers who are drunk, and drivers who are texting on the phone.
After being hurt in an accident, victims have the ability to pursue personal injury claims against those responsible. It is vital to file a claim within the statute of limitations in order to protect your rights and get justice.
How Long Do I Have to File a Claim?
In Texas, there is a crucial time limit, known as the statute of limitations, within which you must file a personal injury claim following a car crash. The statute of limitations for personal injury cases in Texas is generally two years from the date of the accident. It is imperative to be aware of and adhere to this deadline, as failing to file within the stipulated timeframe may prevent you from seeking fair compensation for your losses and damages.
Time is of the essence in preserving evidence, gathering witness statements, and building a strong case. To ensure you meet the deadlines and navigate the legal complexities effectively, it is highly recommended to seek the guidance of a skilled San Antonio car accident lawyer right away.
