Personal Injury Statute of Limitations 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 Dallas law firm today and speak to an experienced personal injury lawyer.

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
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 Dallas 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. A
Dallas injury 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 injury case and how to proceed.
MAS Law handles injury cases involving:
Bus accidents: These accidents often result in serious injuries due to the high number
of passengers involved. We understand the complexities of pursuing compensation
in such cases.
Car accidents: Every motorist in Texas is expected to exercise caution and ensure safety
on the road. Negligent drivers must be held accountable for the damages
Construction accidents: Given the heavy equipment involved in construction projects, injuries
resulting from such accidents can be life-altering and necessitate extensive care.
Motorcycle accidents: Motorcyclists are vulnerable in traffic accidents, and negligence can
lead to severe injuries. Drivers should be held responsible for their actions.
Rideshare and scooter accidents: With the rise of ridesharing and scooter rental services, it is crucial
for companies to prioritize safety and protect their customers from hazardous
Slip and fall accidents and premises liability: Sometimes accidents occur due to a property owner's failure to fulfill
their duty of care. We can help you pursue compensation for injuries resulting
from slip and fall accidents and premises liability.
Truck accidents: Collisions involving semi-trucks often cause catastrophic damage. We
have experience handling complex cases and fighting for justice on behalf
Work injuries: If you sustain an injury while at work, your employer is required to
have insurance coverage for such incidents. Unfortunately, many claims
are wrongfully denied. We can assist you in seeking the compensation you deserve.
Wrongful death: When a preventable accident results in the loss of a loved one, it is
essential to hold responsible parties accountable. While nothing can bring
back a loved one, we can help you seek justice and make necessary adjustments.
