The Statute Of Limitations in Texas
The aftermath of an accident can be an extremely emotional and stressful time as you focus on recovering from your injuries and trying to return your life to the way it was before the accident. And while focusing on your recovery is very important, accident victims should also think about taking legal action in order to pursue financial compensation to pay for medical bills and other losses. Unfortunately, many accident victims wait too long to take legal action and find out that they are no longer able to do so because the statute of limitations, or time they have to file a claim, has passed.
If you or someone you love has been injured by another party’s recklessness or carelessness, you need an experienced legal professional on your side to not only make sure you file your claim on time, but to also provide you with the experienced and aggressive representation you need. As such, you should not hesitate to take action. Contact the attorneys at the Law Offices of Vic Feazell, P.C., today by calling (512) 710-0931.
Statute Of Limitations Time Restrictions
Once the statute of limitations has passed, a plaintiff can no longer take legal action to pursue financial compensation, regardless of how valid their claim may be. Time limits differ from state to state and even between cases. In Texas, an injured victim must abide by the following restrictions:
- Two years from the date the injury was discovered for personal injury claims
- Two years from the date of discovery for wrongful death claims
In order to ensure that the statute of limitations doesn’t expire for your case, you should make sure to file your personal injury claim as soon as possible.
