Car Insurance Claim Time Limits

If you or a loved one has been involved in a car accident it is important to remember that there are time limits to file a claim with your auto insurance. These time limits are usually laid out by statute. Every state has a different statute detailing how long someone has to file a claim. These legal time limits are governed by a state’s statute of limitations.

In Texas, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases gives a person two years from the date of the injury to file a lawsuit. Filing outside of this two-year window may prevent your case from ever being heard. This is an incredibly important time frame to keep in mind when you are examining your options. If you are confused as to how the statute of limitations applies to the facts of your case, consider reaching out to an experienced attorney who can help walk you through the process.

File A Claim As Soon As Possible

If you have been involved in an accident, you should always know that time is of the essence. If filing a claim is something you wish to move forward on, you should do so as soon as possible. You should reach out to an attorney as soon as possible to get the process started. By waiting to file a claim you may weaken the strength of your claim. Over time, witness memories may quickly become hazy and important documentation may get lost.

If filing a claim is something you wish to do, there are some important steps you should consider taking that may be of great benefit to you. Immediately after the accident itself, if you are able, you should begin gathering as much information as possible. This can include taking pictures of the scene of the accident as well as your injuries, speaking to witnesses of the accident, and gathering insurance information from all parties involved. You should also seek medical attention as soon as possible. Your first visit to the doctor can lay the groundwork for what compensation may be available to you further down the line.

Do Not Wait to Hire an Attorney If You Are Injured

One of the first steps you should take if you are injured in an accident is to contact an experienced attorney. An experienced attorney may be able to explain what options are available to you. Remember, you don’t have to go through this process alone. By reaching out to an attorney, you may increase your chances of reaching a favorable outcome. The sooner you reach out to an attorney, the sooner they can get to work on your behalf.
