This past Sunday was Easter Sunday, and if you are someone who traveled to see friends or family, there is a very good chance that you noticed the high volume of traffic on our roads. This is the case with virtually any holiday, and though holidays are supposed to be a time of cheer, the unfortunate reality is that the high volume of traffic often leads to more auto accidents. The high volume of traffic is dangerous in itself, though on holidays, this high volume of traffic is often accentuated by those who made the poor decision to drive while under the influence of alcohol as well. If you’ve been injured in an auto accident this past weekend, our firm is here to help. Please continue reading and speak with our Texas personal injury attorneys to learn more about auto accidents and how we can assist you if you’ve been wrongfully injured in one. Here are some of the questions you may have:
What should I do after an auto accident?
After an auto accident, you should work to document the facts surrounding the incident. For example, you should call the police, ask the other driver for his or her insurance information, take pictures of the scene of the accident, ask anyone who witnessed the accident for their contact information, and ensure you seek immediate medical treatment. Once you are treated at the hospital and are in stable condition, you should hire a knowledgeable Dallas personal injury lawyer who can work to obtain the financial compensation you require to heal in a personal injury claim.
How long will I have to sue another driver for injuries sustained in an auto accident in Texas?
If you are injured in an auto accident in Texas, you should not simply wait to see if your injuries heal on their own, as there is a statute of limitations in place that regulates the amount of time you will have to take legal action against the liable party. If you surpass the statute of limitations, you will most likely permanently lose your right to sue. The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Texas is, generally, two years, which means that in most cases, if you’ve been injured in an accident, you must sue the liable party within two years of the date of your accident. Our firm is here to assist you today.
