What Is Personal Injury?
Personal injury is a field of civil law that allows people injured due to negligence to bring a lawsuit against the individual or entity responsible for their accident. Not only are you eligible to claim compensation for your tangible, financial losses such as hospitalization costs, but you can also recover damages for intangible, non-economic losses like mental anguish, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and pain and suffering.
The Personal Injury Statute Of Limitations In Texas
The statute of limitations for personal injury cases in Texas is two years. This means you have two years from the date you suffered your injuries to file a claim or you will almost certainly lose your ability to do so. Some personal injury cases, such as medical malpractice or wrongful death cases have modifications as to when this two-year clock begins. For example, when filing a wrongful death claim, an individual has two years from the date of their loved one's passing which may be different than the date they suffered their fatal injuries.
Every state has their own statute of limitations, along with their own exceptions to the statute of limitations. In Texas there are circumstances that can extend or shorten this two-year clock so it is important to speak to an attorney about your case as soon as you can. Our firm offers free, no-obligation consultations so you have nothing to lose contacting us today.

About Personal Injury & Negligence
In the context of Texas law, the term “personal injury” refers to any damage that you or your loved one experiences as a result of someone else’s negligence. “Negligence” refers to another party’s failure to behave reasonably, act carefully, or follow the law.
You might be surprised to learn that even true accidents can constitute negligence. In fact, most negligent people never intend to cause anyone harm. However, their careless actions have real consequences, and the law holds careless people accountable for those consequences. More often than not, that means they are responsible for assuming the financial costs of your suffering and losses.
Ideally, negligent people would always agree to pay for the injuries they’ve caused—and their insurance companies would agree to abide by their policy terms as well as state and federal law. Too often, however, defendants and their insurers choose to put up a fight instead. They do everything they can to reduce their financial liability, including “lowballing” your damages and requiring you to take legal action before they even begin to consider a fair valuation of your claim. This is where we come in to stand up for you and your right to obtain fair compensation that will cover your accident-related costs.
