Texas’s Motor Vehicle Accident Statute of Limitations
As you attend doctors’ appointments, spend time with your family, and address your post-accident challenges, time can go by quickly. Per Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code §16.003, you typically have two years to file a lawsuit. This timeline begins from the date of your collision. If you are interested in filing a wrongful death lawsuit, the two-year deadline still applies. However, this timeline begins from the date of your loved one’s passing.
If you fail to file your lawsuit within the appropriate deadline, you risk:
- Having to pay for your collision-related damages out of pocket
- Not being able to hold the at-fault party accountable for their actions
- Having your case dismissed by the overseeing court

How a Corpus Christi Taxicab Accident Lawyer Can Help You
Your lawyer’s ultimate goal is to help you recover compensation for your economic and non-economic damages. At Loncar Lyon Jenkins, we take the outcome of your personal injury case very seriously. In fact, we prepare each case for trial regardless of whether or not it makes it to court.
We can help you pursue financial recovery by:
Gathering Evidence to Support Your Case
Every successful car accident case is built on evidence. Your lawyer can manage the entire evidence collection process.
Some pieces of information that could help your case include:
- The police report
- Your medical treatment records
- Eyewitness testimony
- Statements from third-party field consultants, such as accident reconstruction specialists
- Photos of your injuries and vehicle’s damage
- Traffic camera footage
If you have any of these pieces of evidence on hand, you should consider sharing them with your legal team.
Negotiating a Settlement
We will first try to settle your case by negotiating with the liable party’s insurance company. We will start this process by first presenting the insurer with your demand letter. This document will outline the cost of your damages and the types of injuries you suffered. Hopefully, the insurance company will agree to our terms and offer fair compensation. However, if they do not, then we can file a lawsuit and represent you in court.
Having a lawyer negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf can help you in two ways. First, your lawyer can protect you against any bad faith insurance practices that could threaten your right to financial recovery. Second, they can evaluate the cost of your expenses so that you know what counts as a fair settlement offer.
Filing a Taxicab Accident Lawsuit, if Necessary
You may need to file a lawsuit to secure a financial recovery for your damages. If so, your lawyer can manage the entirety of the litigation process.
- Identify the defendant (or defendants)
- Present decisive forms of evidence
- Argue your case before a judge and jury
- Present the cost of your losses
- Interview and cross-examine witnesses
- Manage your lawsuit’s paperwork
Again, you may have a limited time to file a taxicab accident lawsuit. You should consider calling Loncar Lyon Jenkins at your earliest convenience.
