If you wish to submit a claim or file a personal injury lawsuit after a traffic crash in Texas, you’ll want to stay abreast of a number of state rules and guidelines, such […]
Anyone in Texas who is considering filing a lawsuit for a personal injury or wrongful death needs to be aware of Texas’ statute of limitations. While the law states that victims in Texas have two (2) years to file a lawsuit, there are exceptions to the standard limit.
If you are suing a government entity or municipality, you likely have much less time to file a claim. You see, claims brought under the Texas Tort Claims Act must meet additional pre-suit and post-suit notice requirements. If you fail to meet these requirements in the allowed time, you may be barred for even filing your lawsuit. The best course of action for anyone is to hire an attorney as soon as possible in order to ensure you have every chance at a successful recovery.
In the majority of personal injury and wrongful death cases (including car accidents, medical malpractice, work injuries, etc) filed in the State of Texas fall under this two-year limit. While there are exceptions to the two-year limit (which we discuss later in this article), the best course of action is to act as quickly as possible. In order to meet the deadline under the statute of limitations, it is necessary for the parties to resolve the claim within two years from the date of injury or death. If this is not possible, you must file a lawsuit within that period of time since this extends the deadline beyond the original two-year period.
There are instances under which the courts make exceptions to the two-year statute of limitations.
