Car Accidents in Texas
Automobile accidents injure innocent people every day in Texas. Unfortunately, there are thousands of instances where these accidents take place due to the negligent and reckless actions of other drivers. We see many people hurt as a result of speeding motorists, drivers who are drunk, and drivers who fail to yield to others.
After suffering injuries in an automobile collision, victims have the opportunity to seek compensation from the responsible party. It is imperative to be able to demonstrate fault and liability in order to provide yourself with the best chance of maximizing your financial recovery.
What is the Statute of Limitations?
When considering the initiation of a car accident lawsuit in Texas, it is important to understand how the statute of limitations may play a role in your ability to do so. This law establishes a timeframe within which you must file your legal claim against the other party involved in the crash. In Texas, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases, including those arising from car accidents, typically extends two years from the date of the incident.
It is essential to be aware that this two-year deadline generally applies to the majority of car accident lawsuits in Texas. However, there may be some exceptions that could either shorten or lengthen the amount of time that you have to take legal action. For example, if the responsible party is a government entity or employee, a much shorter notice period may be required.
Waiting too long to file your lawsuit may result in forfeiting your entitlement to seek compensation for your injuries and damages. For this reason, seeking advice from a seasoned car accident lawyer immediately after an accident is crucial.
