Frequently Asked Truck Accident Questions
How much time do I have to sue?
In injury cases the general rule in Texas is that you have two years in which to file suit from the date of the car accident which caused your injury. In certain types of injury cases you may have to give a formal notice of claim within six months of the car accident, or it is too late.
In most breach of contract cases, you have either two years or four years in which to sue. But there are many, many exceptions to these general rules. To take just a few examples: medical malpractice cases, fraud cases, and cases based on violations of various statutes all have different limitations periods-and if you wait even a day too long, you can never sue no matter how bad you were hurt. These rules are so confusing that even many lawyers get them wrong: you must not guess how long you have to sue-- and you must not assume that you have two years to sue just because that is the general rule.
Prompt action is critical to the success of your claim. Our lawyers have seen many people miss out on receiving the compensation they desperately need because they waited too long to contact a lawyer. Even if you have time remaining on the statute of limitations, we need to start building your case right away. The longer you wait to take legal action, the harder it will be to gather the evidence that we need to prove your claim. Witnesses will become harder to find, and their memories may become fuzzy, providing inaccurate testimony about the details of your accident. Physical evidence may disappear and accident scenes may be altered. Important records may get misplaced. Any of these scenarios may prevent you from receiving the compensation you deserve. To avoid this, you will need to speak with our lawyers immediately so that we can begin gathering evidence while it is still fresh.
If you have been hurt or lost money due to someone else's negligence or breach of contract, call us today. You can't call us too soon, and it is tragically easy to be too late.
What will this cost me?
Nothing. Our attorneys will handle your claim on a contingency fee basis, so we will only receive payment if we recover money for you. Our case evaluation is free. If we decide to move forward with your claim, our payment will come from your damage award. If we are unable to secure compensation for you, we will not get paid.
Can you help me if my case is not in Texas?
Yes. We handle many cases outside of Texas.
