Every personal injury case in Texas has a time limit by which you must settle the case or file a lawsuit in order to preserve the claim. This time limit period is called a statute of limitations. If you do not resolve your case through a negotiated settlement or file a lawsuit before the time limit, you will not be able to pursue the claim. In most personal injury cases, the statute of limitations expires two years from the date of the injury. There are exceptions to this rule and you need to contact Funk & Associates to fully understand your rights and Statute of limitations for your specific case.
