I was in a bad car accident in Texas about a year and a half ago. Can I still file a lawsuit?

Yes you can still file a lawsuit, but it is cutting it very close to the cut off date of being able to do so. You need to be aware that all civil lawsuits in Texas come under a statute of limitations. What that means is that you only have 2 years to file a personal injury case and waiting too long may also compromise evidence needed for your case to be successful. In addition, if you wait too long and miss the filing date, you are barred from your right to seek compensation. It is best to file claims at least six months before the time limits so that there is time to make sure everything is in order.
