Without consulting a lawyer, it may be challenging to determine if an accident injury you sustained qualifies for damages in a personal injury claim. Essentially, if someone else’s negligence caused your accident and injuries, you may be eligible to pursue compensation using a personal injury lawsuit. The statute of limitations for most personal injury claims in Texas is two years, beginning on the date of the accident that led to the injuries.
According to Texas law, the negligent party is responsible for any damages sustained due to their negligent actions when they cause harm to another person. The victim is entitled to compensation for medical costs, lost wages, property damage, and other losses resulting from their accident and accident injuries. If your claim is not filed within the deadline, you forfeit your right to pursue compensation, meaning the court is unlikely to hear your claim.
