Texas Personal Injury Laws
Some Texas-specific laws to keep in mind when it comes to personal injury law include:
- Time limits. For the vast majority of personal injury claims, you must file the suit within two years of the injury. If you intend to sue a Texas governmental entity, then you must file a claim with intent to do so within six months of the injury.
- Shared Fault (comparative negligence) Rules. Texas courts may decide that you must own up to a percentage of the fault for your injury, which will proportionately affect any damages you receive. For instance, if your brake lights are not working during the time of the rear-ender wreck in which you were injured, you may be held to be partially at fault.
- Damage caps. These limits on your damages apply to medical malpractice cases and to some claims against governmental entities.
