What is the Statute of Limitations on Personal Injury in Texas?
If you plan on filing a personal injury suit in Texas, it is important to know that the statute of limitations is two years. That means, that after two years, it is unlikely that you can successfully bring a personal injury claim to the courts. In most circumstances, the case will be rejected once the statute of limitations timeframe has been reached.
What is the Discovery Rule in Texas?
The “discovery rule” is one of the exceptions to the statute of limitations in Texas. Since a person does not always discover the injury immediately or the injury does not manifest itself right away, the discovery rule makes provision for the person to file a personal injury claim within a reasonable timeframe once the injury is discovered. Note that this rule might not apply in every situation, so it is important to speak with a personal injury attorney as soon as possible to understand your options.
Have You Recently Lost a Loved One?
Involving the legal system may not be a top priority if you have unexpectedly lost someone dear to you. We understand that you are facing many questions and concerns about your future. We also know that while filing a wrongful death claim may not feel like a high priority at the moment, you still deserve compensation for your losses and damages. The award that you might be eligible to receive could help soften the blow of the financial obligations that are piling up.

- Pain and suffering
