Car Accidents in Texas
Texas car accidents are often devastating. The unfortunate truth is that we see tens of thousands of people hospitalized every year with serious injuries that change their lives forever.
After being hurt in a car crash, it is all too common for victims to be left with serious physical and emotional injuries. In many cases, victims have to go through extensive medical treatment. After being harmed in a crash, victims have the ability to file personal injury claims against those responsible. These legal actions can help victims recover compensation for some of the damages they face.
What is the Statute of Limitations?
In Texas, it’s essential to take legal action following an accident, but the timing is crucial. The timeframe within which you must file a personal injury or wrongful death claim is known as the statute of limitations. In Texas, this statute is set at two years from the date of the accident.
While there are a few exceptions to this rule, seeking legal representation immediately after the accident is vital to ensure your claim is filed within the allotted time. Failing to file your lawsuit within the statute of limitations could result in being unable to recover any compensation for your losses and damages.
