Do I Have a Personal Injury Case?
When a serious accident occurs, the victim of that accident may incur severe injuries, including traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, head and neck injuries, internal injuries, disfiguring injuries, bone fractures, and more. These injuries can change the course of your life, result in high bills and other economic losses, and lead to physical and psychological pain and suffering.
Not all types of accidents warrant a personal injury case; instead, a personal injury case is appropriate when the negligence or wrongdoing of another party leads to the harm of another. If you can prove that another party breached the duty of care owed to you, that the breach was the proximate cause of harm, and that you suffered actual damages as a result, you can hold them liable–or legally responsible–for your damages. If you think that you may have a case but are unsure, you should schedule a free consultation with our Cypress personal injury lawyers.
Statute of Limitations on Personal Injury Claims
A personal injury claim must be brought within the statute of limitations in our state, which is two years from the date that the injury occurs, per Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Section 16.003. If you wait longer than two years to file a lawsuit, the court will not hear your case.
However, while you may have up to two years to file a lawsuit, it’s best to initiate the claims process immediately by reaching out to your insurer or the insurer of the at-fault party as soon as possible after the accident occurs. If you wait too long, the insurance company may not have enough time to investigate your claim or you may have difficulty proving causation (that your injuries would not have occurred but for the accident).
