How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Claim in Texas?

Every state has a law called the statute of limitations, which determines a time limit on how long injury victims have to file a claim before they lose their legal right to do so. According to the Texas Civil Practice & Remedies Code section 16.003, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases in the state of Texas is two years. 

More specifically, this means you have two years from the date your injury occurred to file a claim, or you will almost certainly lose your right to file and along with your right to recover compensation no matter how severe your injuries are. It is important to note that there are exceptions that can change this time limit. The most notable exceptions include:

  • If the injury victim was a minor at the time of the accident. In these circumstances, the two-year time period usually begins once the claimant turns 18 years old. 
  • If the injury victim has a condition that qualifies them as legally mentally incapacitated. In this case the statute of limitations will begin on the date they are declared mentally capable again. 
  • If the alleged negligent party leaves the state of Texas before a claim can be filed, the period of absence will most likely not be counted in the two-year period.

The statute of limitations has a big impact on your ability to file a claim so it’s crucial that you speak to a skilled attorney about the specifics of your case as soon as you can.
