Frequently Asked Questions
What is the Statute of Limitations for a personal injury claim?
In Texas, you have two years to file a personal injury claim. A statute of limitations is an amount of time you have to file a claim from the date of your accident. After the amount of time allowed by the statute has passed, you are not allowed to file a claim for that accident except in certain circumstances.
The statute of limitation begins to “run” from the date your accident occurred. That means the two year time period is calculated beginning with the day the accident happened. In some cases, when you can’t notice your injury right away, the time to file a claim is calculated from the time begins when you could have or should have known about your injury.
