Filing a Motorcycle Accident Claim in Texas | Statute of Limitations
In Texas, you have two years from the date of your motorcycle accident to bring your claim to civil court. This is a hard deadline that you must abide by. If you are late, you will be barred from receiving compensation. We urge you to get to an attorney right away. The sooner you start your case, the more time you have to build a strong case. We will do everything in our power to get you the best possible result and the sooner you can call us, the sooner we can protect your evidence, and talk to your witnesses.
Filing a Motorcycle Accident Claim in Texas | Important First Steps
At the scene of the accident, there are a few things you should do right away. First, if you’re not taken away on an ambulance, you should take photos of the area and your injuries. You will also want to get all contact information from the witnesses of the accident as their testimony can be very helpful for you when you pursue your case. You should also seek out the contact and insurance information from any and all vehicles involved in your accident. Do not leave the scene without this.
You may have the police arrive on the scene to get a full report of the accident. We can get a copy of this report later on to help us out with your case. Lastly, this is something you should avoid doing. Never say to anyone that you are at fault for the accident. Avoid saying it was your fault because even if you think it was your fault in the moment, it might turn out to not be your fault at all. If anyone has on record that you owned up to causing the accident, even if you really didn’t, then you could be hurting your case.
