What is the Texas Statute of Limitations for personal injury claims?

July 29, 2009

A statute of limitations is a law that places a limit on the amount of time in which you have to bring a lawsuit. The length of time varies depending on the type of lawsuit you plan to pursue.

In Texas, the statute of limitations for a personal injury is two years. That means, in the majority of cases, you have only two years from the date of the accident that caused your injuries in which to bring your personal injury lawsuit.

There are a few limited exceptions to the two-year limit. A Texas personal injury lawyer, such as those at Fears Nachawati, can advise you on whether any of these exceptions apply to your case.

It is very important that you speak with a Texas personal injury lawyer as soon as possible after you have been in an accident. Once the statute of limitation runs out, you are barred from bringing a lawsuit related to that incident – which means you have no legal recourse for obtaining compensation for your injuries and financial losses.
