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.
The Statute of Limitations on Personal Injury Claims
According to the Texas Civil Practice & Remedies Code section 16.003, personal injury lawsuits must be filed no later than two years after the date the injury occurred. If you do not get started on the legal process before this date, you may not be eligible to receive compensation. The courts would not be permitted to hear the case at all if you tried to bring the case forward in court.
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 us at Coontz Cochran today.
