How Long Will It Take To Resolve My Case?
Resolving a personal injury case can vary greatly in duration, as each case is unique and depends on various factors. In general, we do not rush through cases, ensuring thorough attention to detail. The time frame largely depends on the severity of the injury and whether a lawsuit is necessary. In Texas, you have two years from the date of the incident to file a lawsuit. On average, personal injury cases can take between 6 months to 2 years to resolve.
How long do I have to file a lawsuit in Texas before the statute of limitations expires?
In Texas, the statute of limitations for filing a lawsuit depends on the type of case. For most personal injury cases, you have two years from the date of the incident to file a lawsuit. It’s important to be aware of this time limit, as failing to file within this period typically means you cannot legally pursue your claim in court. Note that there may be exceptions or different time frames for other types of legal actions, so it’s advisable to consult with a legal professional for specific cases.
Who decides if my personal injury case settles?
The decision to settle your personal injury case is entirely yours as the client. After you have a one-on-one discussion with an attorney, where we go over the numbers and strategize what’s best for your case, you hold the ultimate authority to decide whether to settle or pursue litigation. Our role is to provide you with comprehensive legal advice, including the pros and cons of settling versus going to trial, and to guide you through the process. However, the final decision on whether to accept a settlement offer or proceed to court rests with you. We respect and support your decision, ensuring that it aligns with your best interests and goals for the case.
How much is my personal injury case worth?
Determining the value of a personal injury case depends on a variety of factors unique to each case. The worth of your case can vary based on the specific facts involved, the nature and extent of your injuries, and the available insurance policies. Our approach is to meticulously uncover every detail that can impact your case and strive to recover every dollar possible. It’s important to understand that each case is different, and the outcome is influenced by individual circumstances. Our goal is to ensure that you receive the maximum compensation that reflects the particularities of your situation. We assess all aspects of your case to provide an informed estimate of its potential value.
