Speed-Related Traffic Deaths on the Rise in Texas

Recently, the coronavirus has shut down many businesses across the country and in the state of Texas. With fewer people commuting to work, there are far fewer people on the roads. Though this has led to an overall drop in auto accidents, unfortunately, it has also led to a greater number of speed-related deaths. With wide-open roads, people are more comfortable exceeding the speed limit, which, rather obviously, is both illegal and dangerous. If you are someone who has been injured in an auto accident in Texas, or you lost your loved one in an auto accident, you must continue reading and reach out to our experienced Texas personal injury attorneys to learn more about how we can help you through the claims process ahead. Here are some of the questions you may have:

How do I know if I can sue after an auto accident in Texas?

If you or a loved one has been injured in an auto accident, whether it be a car accident, motorcycle accident, or otherwise, you will have to hire a knowledgeable personal injury attorney who can work to gather and present all evidence needed to satisfy the burden of proof. Some of the most valuable types of evidence can include security camera footage of the accident, pictures of the accident or its aftermath, medical documents regarding your injuries, witness statements, police reports, and more.

How long will I have to sue for an injury in Texas?

The statute of limitations for personal injury claims in Texas is, generally two years, meaning the wrongly injured have two years from the date of their accident to sue. That being said, if you are a surviving spouse, child, or parent of someone who has recently lost their life an auto accident, you will also have two years from the date of the accident to sue. We know this is a sensitive matter, however, the sooner you bring your claim to our attention, the sooner we can fight for the justice you and your family deserve.
