How Long Do I Have to File a Claim in Texas?
The statute of limitations in Texas for personal injury law is two years. This means you have two years from the date of your injury to file a claim or you may lose your right to compensation. If, however, you are filing an injury claim against a government worker or entity you have only 6 months from the date of the injury to file a claim.
What Damages Can I Recover in a Personal Injury Case?
There are three broad categories of damages available to injury victims, general, special and punitive. Special damages compensate for financial losses such as missed days at work, medical bills or cost of future medical care. Generally damages, on the other hand, compensate for more abstract losses such as pain and suffering associated with suffering an injury. The last type of damages, punitive, is different from the first two since their main purpose is to punish the negligent party. With a proven record of results, we routinely receive referrals from individuals and attorneys throughout the United States for help on their personal injury claims.
