What is the statute of limitations for filing a personal injury case in Texas?

In Texas, the statute of limitations for filing a person injury claim is 2 years from the date the injury happened. If you do not file a lawsuit before that date, you lose any right to file a legal action. That said, there are many exceptions to the deadline. In some cases, you must present a claim within a few months of the event. It is critical that you talk to a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible so you do not miss those dates.

Contact a lawyer even if you think you have missed the statute of limitations. In some cases, lawyers are able to use legal strategies and arguments to extend the limitations period so that you may still be able to bring your claim.
