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 you’re trying to settle a personal injury claim, chances are the other party’s insurance company isn’t going down without a fight. That’s because their business is based on looking out for their own interests and minimizing their responsibility for injuries caused by their policyholders. You may even be having difficulty trying to file a claim with your own insurance company.
Insurance companies are in the business of making money for their shareholders. They do that by accepting their client’s (policy holders) monthly premiums, while minimizing the amount of claims they pay out. Simply put, insurance companies do not make money by paying claims. They make money by accepting premiums. You do your part and pay your premiums. When you’re hurt its time for the insurance company to do the right thing and pay you all of the compensation you deserve for your injuries.
If you’re experiencing any difficulty with getting fair and just compensation for your injuries, please contact the Law Office of Shane McClelland for help. By securing legal representation as soon as possible after you have suffered a personal injury, your injury claim will be treated differently by the insurance companies responsible for helping you.
