All states have imposed statutory limits on the amount of time you have to go to court and file a lawsuit after you have suffered some type of harm. These deadlines vary depending on what type of case you want to file, but in general this kind of law is called a statute of limitations.
In Texas, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases gives you two years from the date of the injury to file a lawsuit in the state’s civil court system.
It’s important to understand and adhere to this rule. If you don’t get your lawsuit filed before the two-year window closes, the Texas civil court system will likely refuse to hear your case at any time in the future, and your right to compensation will be lost. If you think you have a claim, you should call an attorney immediately who can help you meet the statute of limitations deadline imposed on your specific claim.
