The guidance and patience exhibited by Attorney LaRue and his team were paramount in the successful navigation of this event for my family and I. In a perfect world I won't have to ring his phone anytime soon, but should the Truck of Life dump on me again, I wouldn't hesitate to dial them up.

What is the Statute of Limitations for Burn Injury Victims?

In Texas, you will have two years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit and pursue compensation for your medical bills and other damages. If you fail to file a lawsuit within this time frame, your case may be dismissed and you will be unable to obtain any compensation for your accident-related losses. When you hire a burn injury attorney at Loncar Lyon Jenkins, they will handle every aspect of your claim, including filing a lawsuit within the statute of limitations.
