How Long Can I Wait To File Lawsuit?
Your vehicle crash case depends on multiple factors such as the type of injuries sustained, who was at fault, and perhaps even the weather or other road conditions, but you cannot wait around to make your claim. In Texas, if you are injured in a crash or if one of your loved ones is, God forbid, killed, you only have two (2) years from the date of the crash to file a lawsuit or your case will be forever barred by the applicable Statute of Limitations. The most important thing is that you immediately seek legal advice when you become aware of an injury, even if you decide not to hire a lawyer. At our firm, the consultation is always free, but affords you much-needed assurance.
Who Is Liable in a Car Accident?
While many vehicle crash cases should be open and shut, many fall into a gray area. Insurance companies often dispute liability or try to low-ball a crash victim claiming that the victim was partly responsible for the crash. That’s where our lawyers come in to prove the other party was at fault and secure your monetary compensation.
The following parties may be responsible for a car accident:
The other driver. If the other driver was negligent and failed to follow the Rules of the Road, you have a claim against that person.
An employer. If the other driver was in the course and scope of his employment with a company when the crash happened, the employer company is also responsible.
An auto manufacturer. Car crashes are going to happen. Auto manufacturers know that. and Some car accidents are unavoidable, regardless of driving actions. If a vehicle malfunctions and causes an accident, a vehicle manufacturer or mechanic may shoulder some of the blame.
Our attorneys will play an instrumental role in uncovering evidence that will support your auto accident claim. Remember that the drivers who caused the crash will likely not pay for the damages out of pocket; usually, the insurance company pays the claim.
