What is the statute of limitations for a personal injury case?
Generally speaking, the statute of limitations for a personal injury claim in Texas is two years. There is a big exception, though, for minors. Minors have until 2 years after their 18th birthday to file a claim. No one, however, should wait two years, a year and a half, or even a year thinking, “I’ve got plenty of time to go talk to a personal injury attorney.” The reason is very simple. Evidence gets lost. Witnesses get lost; they can’t be found. Memories fade. That’s why it’s very, very important to call a personal injury attorney as soon as possible. You don’t want the insurance company to call you and harass you so that, at some point, you break down and give a statement to the insurance company. That’s something you don’t want to do.
