Filing a Personal Injury Lawsuit in San Angelo, TX
When you suffer an injury in a car crash or another type of accident, it is extremely important to understand that you only have a limited amount of time to file a claim. This time window is called the statute of limitations.
As such, if you get hurt in a motor vehicle crash or in any incident resulting from another party’s negligence, you have two years from the date of your injury to file a claim for financial compensation.
The statute of limitations is strict, and you can be barred from filing a lawsuit if you fail to file a lawsuit within two years.
How Proportionate Responsibility Can Affect Your San Angelo Personal Injury Lawsuit
What happens if an injured plaintiff bears some responsibility for the accident or for the severity of the injuries? Many states refer to this issue in terms of comparative fault or contributory negligence.
Texas law (Tex. Civ. Prac. & Rem. Code § 33.003) defines it as proportionate responsibility.
Plaintiffs who are partially at fault usually can recover damages. In short, as long as a plaintiff is 50 percent or less at fault, the plaintiff can recover damages in a personal injury claim, but his damages award will be reduced by his percentage of fault. However, once a plaintiff is 51 percent or more at fault, she or he is barred from recovery.
