When a brain injury strikes, the victim is generally not the best person to make decisions on what to do next. That is when family and friends should step in and help. It’s also when an experienced brain injury lawyer should be consulted. A good brain injury lawyer will know how best to proceed and what Texas laws may affect your claim.
Keep in mind that the following laws may not be the only ones your attorney will address, and they are not the only Texas laws that might affect your case.
All accidents have a time limit to file a lawsuit. If that time limit comes and goes with no lawsuit filed, you may be prevented from recovering anything for your case. Generally, in Texas you have just two years to file a personal injury lawsuit. You should keep that in mind and not wait to the last minute. Getting a brain injury lawyer involved early can also help with gathering evidence, talking to witnesses while memories are fresh, and making sure you get to the right treating physicians.
