Q: When Should I File My Personal Injury Claim or Suit?
A: All states have imposed statutory limits on the amount of time you have to file your claim or lawsuit after an injurious accident. In Texas, the statue of limitations, or deadline, for personal injury cases is two years from the date of the injury, according to Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code, Title 2 Section 16.003. If you don't get your claim or lawsuit filed before this two-year window closes, you will completely forfeit your right to have your case heard in the Texas civil court system. In other words, you will lose your right to collect compensation for your damages.
