Don’t Wait to File Your Claim
Every state has a “statute of limitations” outlining when an
injury victim must file a personal injury claim before they lose their
right to recover compensation. According to the Texas Civil Practice &
Remedies Code section 16.003, the statute of limitations for personal
injury cases in Texas is two years. While Texas does recognize some exceptions
to this rule, it is best to contact an attorney from our firm right away to
Damages You Can Recover in a Personal Injury Case
There are three types of damages available for injury victims to pursue
in a personal injury case. “Damages” is a legal term used
to describe the items an injured person can pursue compensation for after
These damages are economic, non-economic, and punitive damages. The first
two damages also called general and special damages, are responsible for
compensating the injury victim for losses such as lost wages, medical
expenses, and pain and suffering. Together, special and general damages
are known as “compensatory damages,” that is, damages responsible
for compensating the injured party for as many losses as possible.
The last type of damages, punitive damages, differ from the first two in
that their main purpose is to punish the at-fault party rather than compensate
the injured party. As such, punitive damages are not often awarded in
personal injury cases.
