Demanding Full Compensation in Your Personal Injury Case
If someone else is at fault for your injury, you may be owed money for losses that you’ve endured, such as:
- Medical costs for things like hospitalizations, surgeries and other procedures, physical rehab, or prescriptions
- Lost wages or income for missed time at work while recovering
- Lost earning potential, if you suffer disabilities that indefinitely or permanently impact your ability to maintain the same wage as before your accident
- Lost enjoyment or quality of life, due to physical scarring or disabilities that interfere with daily living or participation in activities
- Pain and suffering, or the physical and emotional distress brought about by your injuries
Our experienced Deer Park personal injury attorneys can review your case and help you determine what compensation you may be entitled to receive.
Time Limit for Filing a Personal Injury Claim in Texas
Under Texas’s statute of limitations, you generally have two years from the date of your accident to file a personal injury lawsuit. If you wait until after the statute of limitations has expired on your claim, the court can permanently dismiss the suit. If that happens, you will have lost your right to seek financial recovery in court.
Although two years may seem like a lot of time, it takes time and work to build a personal injury case. The sooner you speak with an experienced lawyer, the better off you will be.
After you’ve been hurt in an accident that was caused by someone else, our attorneys can help you through the claims process by:
- Reviewing the details of your case and walking you through your legal options in a 100% free consultation
- Investigating the facts and circumstances of your injuries to secure evidence we can use to pursue your claim
- Bringing in expert witnesses in accident reconstruction, engineering, and medicine as necessary to help us develop a strong, persuasive argument on your behalf
- Making sure you can get the medical treatment and physical rehabilitation you need to recover from your injuries
- Checking in with you throughout your recovery to help mitigate the impacts from your injuries wherever we can
- Managing the insurance companies by filing your claim, negotiating a full and fair settlement, or pursuing your case in court, including advocating on your behalf at trial if necessary

What is negligence?
“Negligence” refers to careless, reckless, or wrongful (including unlawful) behavior. Often, this type of behavior leads to serious accidents, injuries, and even deaths. Some examples of negligence include someone who runs a red light because they were texting while driving, a shop owner who fails to put out a “wet floor” sign after an employee mops up a spill, or a dog owner who allows their dangerous dog to roam free and unleashed in a public park.
How do I know if I have a case?
You likely have a personal injury case if you were injured and suffered measurable damages—such as medical bills or pain and suffering—due to the careless, reckless, negligent, or wrongful conduct of another person or party. In other words, if someone else is to blame for your injuries, you could have grounds for a personal injury claim. The best way to know whether you have a case is to contact an attorney at our firm for a free consultation. During this initial meeting, we can go over the details of your situation and provide personalized counsel tailored to your circumstances.
How much is my personal injury case worth?
The exact value of your personal injury case depends on a variety of factors. Some of these factors include the severity of your injuries, the extent of your damages, whether you had to take time off work to recover, how much time you had to take off work, whether your injuries resulted in a disability, and your degree of fault (if any) in causing the event that led to your injuries. It is not possible for any attorney to estimate the value of your claim without first reviewing the specific details involved. We encourage you to reach out to our Houston personal injury attorneys at Pines & Goldenzweig, PLLC to request a complimentary case review.
Will I have to go to court?
Not all personal injury cases go to court. In fact, many settle in pre-trial litigation or as a result of your attorney’s negotiations with the insurance company. However, if the liable party refuses to play fair, you want an attorney who is not only willing but also has the experience needed to aggressively represent you at trial. At Pines & Goldenzweig, PLLC, we will prepare you for what to expect with your case, including whether or not you may need to go to court.
How long do I have to file a lawsuit?
In most cases, there is a two-year statute of limitations on personal injury lawsuits in Texas (surrounding states may have different laws). This means that you typically have just two years from the date of injury to bring your claim in court. Sometimes, when an injury is not discovered right away, the statute of limitations will be deferred to two years from the date on which the injury was discovered or reasonably could have been discovered.
There are some exceptions to this two-year deadline, but they are rare. We encourage you to act quickly after an accident or injury to avoid losing your right to seek compensation for your damages. If the statute of limitations expires, the court will almost certainly dismiss your case. Even if you think it might be too late, reach out to Pines & Goldenzweig, PLLC to discuss your legal options.
