The Amount of Time You Have to File Your Pedestrian Accident Case
How long you have to file an insurance claim is up to the insurance companies. However, when it comes to filing a lawsuit, the State of Texas has its own laws.
For both personal injury and wrongful death cases, Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 16.003 affirms that you typically have two years to file a lawsuit. There could be exceptions to this time limit, but they are not very common.
So, it is important that you act quickly because the state will most likely bar you from suing for damages. If you notify us about your case as soon as possible, a lawyer with our firm can make sure you comply with the deadline.

Our Pedestrian Accident Lawyers in Fort Worth Can Help You Pursue Your Case
Navigating the legal process after a pedestrian accident can be tedious and overwhelming, especially if this is your first time. Our lawyers at Loncar Lyon Jenkins have been handling personal injury cases for over 30 years, so we know the ins and outs of the system.
Leave it to us to take charge of your case while you concentrate on getting better. Some of our services include:
Your side of the story is probably the most important aspect of your case. However, the other party will not necessarily take your word for it and will not automatically award you compensation.
We can help you to back up your claim with proof like:
- Witness testimony
- Expert witness input
- Pictures of your injuries
- Pictures of the accident and the road conditions
- Video surveillance of the accident
- Medical bills
- The crash report
These documents, footage, and statements will show who the liable party is. They will also illustrate that they were negligent in that they owed you a duty of care and violated it, which caused the accident – and ultimately, your injuries.
Dealing with the Insurance Companies and Other Involved Parties
After the accident, the other party’s insurance company or legal team might try to contact you so you can give a statement. The representative might use manipulative tactics to make you admit fault or say that your injuries aren’t that painful. They can also twist your words so they won’t have to pay you a fair settlement.
If they initiate contact, you can direct the call to us. From there, we can manage all communication throughout the course of your case.
Once you have gathered the evidence and quantified your damages, we can file a claim with the insurance company and start negotiating a settlement for you. If the insurance company refuses to give you a fair amount, one of our pedestrian lawyers can take your case to trial.
Being Your Champion Throughout Your Case
Whenever there is news or a change in the progression of your case, you can count on us to reach out to you right away to keep you in the know.
Also, if we ever need any clarification on the details from your side of the case, we will check in with you so we can represent you accurately and efficiently.
