What You Need to Know About Pursuing Compensation for Your Losses
We want you to understand everything about the legal process, including:
You Generally Have Two Years to File Your Car Accident Lawsuit
Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 16.003 is clear on these things:
- Injured claimants generally have two years to file their lawsuits.
- The deadline also applies to wrongful death claimants.
- The courts will dismiss cases filed outside of the two-year period.
Some exceptions may apply. For instance, if the at-fault party leaves the state, this tolls the statute of limitations, per Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 16.063. You could also get an extension if a disability prevents you from filing your case.
We Resolve Many Injury Claims Through Insurance Negotiations
We’re bulldogs in court. We object to unfair questions, uphold courtroom procedure, and dismiss certain forms of evidence. However, we usually “win” compensation through insurance claims.
We want to share this information with you because:
- We understand you might worry about going to court.
- We know that you want your money as soon as possible.
- You may wonder whether every car accident case requires a lawsuit.
Our car accident lawyers in Tyler will do everything possible to resolve your case, whether in or out of court.
Your Case’s Value Depends on Your Situation
The amount of compensation you can recover depends on:
- Your recovery period
- Your missed time from work
- Your necessary medical treatment
- The cost of your financial losses, including your car’s damage
- The liable party’s insurance policy’s limits
We’ve recovered million-dollar settlements for our clients. We will fight for every dime you need.

We Can Prove Your Case’s Required Elements
The American Bar Association (ABA) says to recover compensation in a civil case you must prove negligence. This involves showing:
The Other Party Owed You a Duty of Care
Whether they operate a car, bus, or truck, every road user must employ safe driving practices. This involves stopping at red lights, maintaining the speed limit, and yielding the right-of-way.
The Other Party Violated Their Duty of Care
When another party violates their duty of care, this means they acted unreasonably. For instance, when a motorist drives under the influence, this violates other road users’ duty of care.
The Other Party Caused Most of Your Accident
Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 33.001 says that you can still recover compensation even if you caused some of the accident.
We can affirm this by using traffic camera footage, the accident report, and eyewitness statements.
You Suffered Losses
Finally, we must show that you incurred various losses. This doesn’t just include financial damages. It also includes physical and emotional losses, such as mental trauma and injuries.
