If you’re considering filing a personal injury claim in Texas, one of the most crucial pieces of information you need to know is the statute of limitations. At McLaurin Law, we frequently receive this question from clients and potential clients alike.



In Texas, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims is generally two years. This means you have two years from the date of your injury to file a lawsuit. However, there are some exceptions to this rule.

Sometimes, injuries aren’t immediately apparent, and it may take time to discover them. In such cases, the time frame for filing a claim can be extended. Additionally, if there are other causes of action, such as breach of contract or other theories of liability, the period to file might also be extended.

While the standard time frame is two years, it’s always safest to initiate your claim well before this deadline. Complex cases can involve multiple negligent parties or identifying the correct parties to sue, which can take time. Filing early helps ensure that all necessary details are addressed and that your claim is thoroughly prepared.

If you have a personal injury claim, it’s crucial to consult an attorney as soon as possible. At McLaurin Law, we’re available 24 hours a day to answer your questions and provide the guidance you need. Contact us promptly to ensure that you’re fully informed about your time frame for filing a lawsuit and to avoid any potential issues with the statute of limitations.

Don’t wait—contact McLaurin Law today at  (713) 528-8012, and let us help you navigate your personal injury claim within the required legal time frame.
