What Are My Legal Options

The benefit of consulting with a personal injury attorney is that they are able to discuss all your legal options with you. There are many misconceptions about what happens when you file a lawsuit. People often envision facing off in a courtroom.

The reality is that most personal injury lawsuits result in settlements. Only 4 to 5 percent of those cases actually go to trial. Trials are more expensive and time-consuming, so it is usually in everyone’s best interests to come up with a fair settlement. A settlement simply means that the injured party accepts an amount of compensation from the responsible party (or parties). In return, you agree not to seek any further damages from them.

Accident Injury Claims

Personal injury claims are civil lawsuits. It’s possible that a criminal case against the negligent party (such as a drunk driver) will take place while you are pursuing your civil case. However, those two claims are entirely separate and handled by different attorneys applying different Texas statutes.

In Texas, there is a two-year statute of limitations to file a claim against a negligent party. Sometimes the extent of the injuries is so uncertain that it can be wise to wait to file suit. You may want to fully understand what your ultimate outcome will be. However, you still should talk to an attorney as soon as possible after your accident. You don’t want to miss the deadline or risk that valuable evidence goes missing. Any case submitted after the statue of limitations will likely not come to fruition.

Statute of Limitations in Texas

In General, the personal injury statute of limitations in Texas is two years from the date of the accident. If you are going to file a lawsuit you must do so within this time span. You can learn more about the law by clicking here.

There are exceptions that can extend and/or shorten a limitations period. One example of extending the date is called tolling. Time limitations can be extended if the injured individual was a minor at the time of the incident occurred. When they turn 18, the standard two-year statute of limitations becomes active.

Additionally, if you are in an accident with a government entity in Texas, you may have other provisions you may need to comply with. Some municipalities have very short notice provisions from a few months to six months. It is very important that you understand the provisions that may apply to such entity.

There are other legal deadlines that can impact a personal injury claim in Texas. If you have any issues or questions regarding a potential limitation or the timing of a personal injury claim contact Walker Texas Lawyer Today! He is the Texas Personal Injury Lawyer.
