Personal injuries include car accidents, motorcycle accidents, truck accidents, dog bites, pedestrian accidents, and wrongful death cases. If you were injured in any of these types of cases, you should file a personal injury claim. But if it’s been months since the accident took place, you may be wondering whether you can still file a claim.
The Law Office of Javier Martinez, Jr., P.C. is here to help answer your pending questions. Read ahead to find out the best steps for filing a personal injury claim.
The Best Time to File a Claim
As with all cases, the best time to file a claim and immediately after the accident. The sooner, the better. In Texas, the tort law says that you have two years after the accident took place to file a personal injury claim. However, in some cases, this time-frame may be shorter. So long as you fall within the two-year mark, you should take legal action.
The Importance of Working With a Personal Injury Attorney
If it’s been months since the time of the accident, there is a lot of evidence and details that could be overlooked. A personal injury attorney’s role is to gather all of the facts and information needed to confidently bring your case forward.
In the midst of recovering, you may also be dealing with stress and other life difficulties, which can make seeking legal action extremely challenging. It’s not always possible to think straight. That’s okay — your personal injury attorney sees your situation from a legal standpoint. He or she will gather documentation, represent you, and negotiate any settlements. Simply put, your lawyer will handle all of the legalities of filing a claim and reaching a fair settlement.
