Statute of Limitations of Auto Accident Injury Claims 

The short answer is yes, you can file a car accident injury claim during the Coronavirus pandemic. However, there are a few things you need to consider first. Most importantly, you need to understand the statute of limitations of auto accident injury claims in the state of Texas. Okay, so what does that mean? Simple, after someone is hurt in a car crash there is a limited amount of time that they have to file an injury claim. This is to protect insurance companies from fraud. Say you got in a wreck three years ago, you never reported it, but now you’re trying to collect some money so you file a claim that you were hurt. That’s not going to fly.

This is why it’s so important for auto accident victims to seek medical attention right after a crash. Even if you don’t feel hurt right away. Only a doctor can properly diagnose your injuries. After you get checked out by a medical professional we always advise accident victims to call an injury attorney. Humberto Tijerina and our entire legal team at the Tijerina Legal Group can help file a claim for you. This way we get it reported on time.

Additional Things to Consider When Hiring a McAllen Car Crash Attorney

If your claim falls within the statute of limitations you can file. However, there are additional things to consider when hiring a McAllen car crash attorney. Did you take photos of your accident? Are their witnesses you can verify your depiction of the wreck? Most importantly, we need medical documentation linking your injuries to the accident. There are a lot of variables that play major roles in getting you paid after a car crash injury. That’s why we always recommend contacting a McAllen car crash lawyer as soon as possible.
