How Long do You Have to File Your Traumatic Brain Injury lawsuit?
Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 16.003 outlines Texas’s statute of limitations. For your lawsuit to be heard in civil court, you must file within the two-year deadline. It will either begin from the date of your accident or your loved one’s passing – depending on your circumstances.
If you do not file your case within the statute of limitations, you risk losing your chance to recover damages. It is also important to act quickly after getting hurt because:
- Certain pieces of evidence may no longer be available.
- The other party could contest the cause of your injuries.
- The insurance company may purposefully drag out your case since the deadline is approaching.
- Witnesses may forget some important details.
Our team will start building your case as soon as you sign with us. We will file your lawsuit on time (if time permits) and keep it moving along smoothly.

Your Case Could Take One of Two Routes
We will first start your case by filing an insurance claim. Doing so could be with the insurer of a driver, property owner, or workplace. In service of your insurance claim, we will:
- Negotiate a settlement
- Show the cost of your damages
- Read the liable policy
- Demonstrate negligence
- Handle all communications
If the insurer is unwilling to negotiate or settle, we can file a lawsuit against the at-fault party and go to court. In addition to filing your case within the statute of limitations, your brain injuries lawyer in Beaumont will:
- Interview and cross-examine witnesses, including consultants
- Explain how the law pertains to your case
- Handle the paperwork involved with filing a lawsuit
- Represent you at trial
- Continue negotiating with the insurer out of court
You do not need to learn everything about the legal process to recover compensation. We have already done that for you. Our team can handle your case regardless of whether it stays an insurance claim or develops into a lawsuit.
Two Recommendations that Could Advance Your Case
While we fight for your legal rights, we want you to stay at home and spend time with your loved ones. You may be curious about what actions you could take to benefit your case, though.
You could consider:
Staying off Social Media
Do not post anything about the incident or your condition online, including pictures, statuses, posts, and other media. If you want to share information about your situation with others, you should avoid doing so on a public forum.
Let Your Brain Injuries Lawyer Handle the Insurance Company
You can expect your lawyer to be knowledgeable about your situation. You may not be able to expect the same from the claims adjuster. If they try to contact you, tell them to talk to your lawyer. You should not feel pressured or taken advantage of by anyone during your recovery period.
