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 Richardson law firm today and speak to an experienced personal injury lawyer.

Schedule your initial consultation with our Richardson personal injury attorneys by dialing (972) 460-9339 or contacting our law firm online.

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 Richardson 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 Richardson 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: 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 other drivers.
  • 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.
