In life, sometimes we suffer accidents. Roughly 30 million people a year visit emergency rooms due to unintentional injuries. Whether it be at home, on the road, at work, or any point in between, a personal injury accident can happen anywhere.
You may be in horrible pain; gathering your thoughts might be next to impossible as you ponder what happens next. In the aftermath of your personal injury, you may even be up to your eyes in medical bills. While urgency might be the order of the day, the filing of your personal injury claim is something that you need to take a thoughtful approach to.
If you have suffered a personal injury as the result of an auto accident, dog bite, workplace injury, or through other incidents, trust in the Law Office of Ryan C. Solis to help you secure justice and compensation.
In Texas, the general tort law rule requires you to file a personal injury claim within two years after your injury occurred. Unfortunately, you might not immediately know the extent of your injuries, and there might not be any symptoms. This is why it is in your best interest to seek out medical care regardless of how serious you consider your injuries to be.
Certain injuries, such as deep lacerations or broken bones are obvious, but symptoms for injuries such as soft tissue or traumatic brain injuries may take hours or days to manifest.
The first step in developing a strong claim is to seek out medical care to (1) receive the treatment you need for your injury and (2) to secure evidence/documentation that you were indeed injured.
Act Now, Yet Maintain Patience
After your accident, it is important to file your claim fairly soon, but you need to exercise just a little patience in the matter. You’ll need advice before you proceed; you should contact an experienced McAllen attorney after your personal injury accident to better understand what steps you should take next.
As previously mentioned, the personal injury statute of limitations in Texas is two (2) years. Missing this deadline means you’ll basically lose any chance of securing any compensation for the damages you have suffered.
The sooner you take action, the more likely you can obtain all the necessary information, documentation, and proof to make your claim go as smoothly as possible. More than likely, you’ll succeed in your case if you file sooner rather than later.
However, it can take time for your attorney/legal team to obtain and evaluate all the necessary information to file said claim. Therefore, they need to begin the process early to meet the two-year deadline. Not only that, by filing relatively early, you’ll be allowing enough time for doctors to uncover all of your injuries and any potential long-term risks.
Let Your Attorney Handle It
Your lawyer will take over the situation from a legal standpoint so you will not need to worry about anything. This is the time that you’ll need to recover, gather your thoughts, and get your remaining affairs in order.
When you choose the Law Office of Ryan C. Solis, you are choosing a champion of the people. Our McAllen personal injury attorney can help you to uncover the exact cause of your injury while also helping you to secure all the necessary evidence needed to develop the strongest claim possible.
Again, the sooner you contact the Law Office of Ryan C. Solis, the sooner we can bring those who have harmed you to justice. This is especially important as these scandalous parties may attempt to get rid of evidence or fix the issue that caused you harm.
