In Texas, victims are designated two years to file a personal injury lawsuit from the date of the incident. Keep in mind the longer you wait, the more you lose. Memory tends to fade as time passes, making your testimony and those of witnesses less reliable. You also run the risk of losing important evidence due to accidental misplacement or discarding. File when the details are still fresh in your mind and when evidence is still in your possession. Your personal injury attorney requires every single piece of information available to you to design a potent legal strategy against the defense.
