Please continue reading and reach out to our experienced Texas personal injury attorney to learn more about how we can help you through the process ahead. Here are some of the questions you may have:
I Do Not Want to Sue My Friend, but I’ve Been Injured on His Property. What Should I Do?
When clients come in with this question, we understand the severity of the predicament they are in. This is why we are so happy to inform them that under most circumstances, if they have been injured at their friend’s home, they will not have to sue that friend directly for their injuries. Instead, when you bring a lawsuit against a homeowner, you are generally simply suing that homeowner’s insurance company. Simply put, you will most likely not cost your friend a dime, while still being able to receive the compensation you deserve and need to heal.
How Do I Know if I Have Valid Grounds for A Personal Injury Claim in Texas?
To win a premises liability claim in Texas, you will have to hire a knowledgeable Texas personal injury attorney who can gather and present sufficient evidence to prove that you were injured as a direct result of the property owner’s negligence.
How Long Will I Have to Sue for An Injury Sustained on Another Person’s Property in Texas?
If you are injured on another person’s property, you will have two years from the date of your accident to file a premises liability claim, in accordance with the state’s statute of limitations. You must not wait any longer than two years, for if you do, there is a very good chance that you will be permanently time-barred from suing. Our firm is ready to get started today. All you have to do is pick up the phone and give us a call.
