How Much Time Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Claim in Texas?
In Texas, you have 2 years from the date of your injury, or from the date that you discovered you were injured or ill, to file a lawsuit for compensation. Although this seems like a substantial amount of time, the sooner that you can file a claim, the better.
When you begin the process of filing a claim closer to the actual date of the incident, you benefit from the opportunities to collect fresh evidence from the accident site, to interview witnesses, and to undergo comprehensive medical evaluations.
All these factors increase your chances of obtaining adequate compensation for your injuries.
What Does Compensation Cover?
In a successful personal injury case, compensation is awarded to the injured victim and/or their family members.
Compensation may cover the following:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of consortium
- Loss of future wages
In some cases, the negligent party may be further punished for exceptionally reckless and damaging illegal acts. If this were the case, additional fines would be awarded to the victim.
