What Is The Statute Of Limitations On Personal Injury In Texas?
According to the Texas Civil Practice & Remedies Code section, 16.003
the statute of limitations for personal injury cases in Texas is two years.
This means that you have two years from the date of your injury to file
a claim or you will lose your right to pursue compensation.
While Texas does recognize some exceptions to this two-year rule, it is
best to file your personal injury claim as soon as possible. If you have
any questions about how the statute of limitations might affect your case,
call our firm today and speak to an experienced attorney.
Recoverable Damages in a Personal Injury Case
There are three types of damages available for injury victims to pursue
in a personal injury case. These damages are economic, non-economic, and
punitive damages. The first two damages, also called general and special
damages can be grouped together as “compensatory damages.”
Compensatory damages are the damages responsible for compensating the
injured party for as many losses as possible. These losses can include:
- Past and future medical expenses
- Lost wages due to the inability to work
- Mental anguish
- Pain and suffering
The last type of damages, punitive damages, differ from compensatory damages
in that their main purpose is to punish the at-fault party rather than
compensate the injured party. As such, punitive damages are not often
awarded in personal injury cases.
Should I Hire an Attorney for My Personal Injury Case?
A qualified attorney from our firm can walk you through the entire process
of filing a personal injury claim, and unlike insurance companies, they
are true advocates on your side. Insurance companies more often than not
are looking out for their company’s bottom line, not your best interest.
Additionally, many people find that their injuries turn out to be more
severe days or weeks after they sustained them. If you accept an insurance
settlement before you know how serious your injuries turn out to be, you
may find your settlement no longer covers all your medical expenses. An
attorney from our firm can fight to protect your rights and help you recover
the compensation you deserve.
Representation for All Your Personal Injury Needs
While some accidents are obviously the fault of someone else and require
restitution, others are not so apparent. By having the help of experienced
legal professionals, you will be able to better determine what to expect
from your case and how to proceed.
MAS Law handles cases involving:
Bus accidents: Professional drivers are held to a higher standard than other people.
Vehicles that carry many people can be dangerous in an accident. It's
likely there will be numerous serious injuries that require extensive care.
Car accidents: As a motorist in Texas, each driver is required to exercise caution and
make sure they are taking care to be safe. Bad drivers must be held responsible
for the damage they cause.
Construction accidents: Because of the heavy equipment involved in a given construction project,
the injuries that result from construction accidents can be life-altering
and require significant care.
Motorcycle accidents: Motorcyclists are unfortunately unprotected in traffic accidents. While
drivers are expected to look out for them and be careful on the road,
negligence can lead to debilitating injuries.
Rideshare and scooter accidents: With the advent of ridesharing and vehicle rental, it is more important
than ever to make sure these companies take all necessary precautions
to safeguard their property against dangerous conditions.
Slip and fall accidents and premises liability: While accidents happen, sometimes the reason is because a property owner
failed to exercise the care they were supposed to provide over their property.
Truck accidents: When a semi truck is involved in an accident, the damage is often catastrophic.
These vehicles are extremely powerful and often result in the deaths of
Work injury: Because accidents happen at work, employers are required to purchase
insurance that covers any injuries sustained by their employees. Far too
often, employees seek compensation for injuries only to find their claims
denied, making it impossible to recover quickly and fully.
Wrongful death: Preventable accidents that result in death are the worst kind, and while
nothing can bring a loved one back, adjustments must be made and people
must be held accountable for accidents that never should have happened.
