The unfortunate reality of auto accidents is that not only can they have devastating impacts on those who’ve been wrongly injured in them, but that they also happen every day here in the state of Texas. If you are someone who has recently sustained a serious injury in an auto accident, you are most likely seeking financial compensation to help cover the cost of your medical bills, lost wages from being unable to return to work, and potential non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering.

Here are some of the questions you may have:
What are the most common causes of auto accidents?
Auto accidents are, at times, unavoidable, however, they are frequently caused by negligence. Some of the most common causes of auto accidents are texting while driving, driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, speeding, driving while fatigued, and otherwise ignoring rules and regulations of the road. If you were injured in an auto accident as a result of another party’s negligence, there is a very good chance that you will have a valid personal injury claim.
What should I do if I am injured in an auto accident?
If you are injured in an auto accident, the most important thing you can do is seek medical treatment, and, if possible, document the facts surrounding your accident. This means that you should take pictures of the scene of the accident, obtain witness testimony so they can corroborate your claim at a later date, obtain medical documentation regarding the origin and extent of your injuries, and, of course, retain the services of a knowledgeable Dallas personal injury attorney who has handled several auto accident claims in the past. Our firm is here to help.
What is the statute of limitations for auto accident claims in Texas?
The statute of limitations for auto accident claims in Texas is, generally, two years. When someone waits any longer than two years from the date of their accident to take legal action against the liable party, they will most likely be permanently barred from doing so altogether. We are ready to assist you through the claims process today–do not make the mistake of waiting past the state’s statute of limitations.
