Do I have a personal injury claim?

August 20, 2009

The answer to this question depends on the specific facts of your case, but in general, there are two things you need in order to have a personal injury claim. First, you must have been injured. Your injury can be either physical, emotional or both.

Second, you must be able to prove that someone else is responsible for your injuries. In most cases this is a matter of proving that the other person was negligent, meaning they did not act with the care that a reasonable person would have in the same circumstances. However, a Texas personal injury lawsuit can also be based on strict liability or an intentional tort.  For more information on the different types of personal injury cases

If you think you may have a personal injury claim, you should speak to a lawyer as soon as possible. The law places limits on the amount of time in which you have to bring a claim. The Texas statute of limitations on personal injury lawsuits is 2 years.

Not every injury can be the basis of a personal injury lawsuit. Sometimes we get hurt through no fault of another person. The wisest course of action, however, is to speak with a personal injury attorney in Texas who can determine whether or not you have a case. When it comes to your legal rights, it is best to err on the side of caution. Always speak with an attorney before you accept any settlement or insurance offer.
