Prompt Legal Action Benefits Your Case in Multiple Ways
Under Texas law, you generally have two years to file your injury lawsuit. The two-year period usually applies whether you personally suffered harm or lost a loved one. If you don’t file your case within this allotted period, you could lose the right to seek damages.
The statute of limitations isn’t the only reason to consider prompt legal action. The sooner you get in touch, the easier it may be for us to:
- Gather time-sensitive evidence, such as traffic camera footage
- Prevent the insurer from contesting your case
- Connect your injuries to your accident
A catastrophic injury lawyer from our office who serves Corpus Christi will manage each of your case’s deadlines. However, we must learn about your case before we can uphold your legal rights.
