Time Limitations For Wrongful Death and Accident Claims in Texas
Like most states, Texas has a statute of limitations for wrongful death claims. Under usual circumstances, a claimant is only eligible to file an action within 2 years of the incident. There are many exceptions to this rule, but our advice is not to wait and to contact a qualified attorney for legal advice on your claim as soon as possible.
