Do You Have a Personal Injury Case?
Before filing a personal injury lawsuit, you must find out if you have the grounds for a case. Personal injury is any harm caused by a person who was negligent, meaning that he or she breached a standard of care.
In order to file a lawsuit, you must prove that a person was negligent in his or her behavior toward you and that negligence harmed you in a quantifiable way.
Protecting Your Right to Compensation
It is important to note that Texas is a contributory negligence state. That means that if you were partly at fault, you can still obtain damages in proportion to the other party's fault, as long as the other party was more than 51 percent liable.
How Long is The Statute of Limitations on Personal Injury Claims in Texas?
According to the Texas Civil Practice & Remedies Code section 16.003, the statute of limitations in Texas for personal injury lawsuits must be filed within two years from the date the injury occurred, otherwise you risk losing your eligibility to file and pursue compensation.
The courts will mostly refuse to hear the case at all if you tried to bring the case forward in court, unless you qualify for an exemption to this law. These laws are in place to ensure that your case is handled in a timely manner.
Get started on your case as soon as possible, or you could lose your chance to gain any compensation for the accident. If you would like to learn more about this or need to get started on the process, please do not hesitate to contact a Burleson personal injury lawyer at Coontz Cochran today.
