Battling an Insurance Company
Odds are in the aftermath of an accident caused by another party, you find yourself staring down an insurance company. You must always keep in mind that an insurance company is in business for one primary reason: to make money for its shareholders.
An insurance company increases its income by keeping the amount it pays in claims to an absolute minimum. In other words, an insurance company makes money by shortchanging you.
The Texas Statute of Limitations
When it comes to personal injury law in Texas, one important element you must bear in mind is the Texas statute of limitations. The statute of limitations is a law that established a timeframe in which you must file a personal injury lawsuit.
In Texas, if you have been injured because of someone else's negligence, you must file a lawsuit within two years of the date of the accident. If you fail you fail to make this deadline, you are likely to be precluded forever from seeking compensation for your injuries.
Texas Shared Fault Regulations
Texas maintains what is called a modified comparative negligence rule. What this means is that if you at found to be at least partially responsible for causing an accident or injury, any compensation to which you may be entitled will be reduced by the amount of negligence attributed to you.
Assume a jury determines the total losses you sustained in your case is $100,000. The jury also concludes that you are 10 percent at fault. Your award will be reduced by 10 percent, or $10,000. If you are determined to be more than 50 percent at fault in causing an accident, you will be entitled to receive nothing in your case.
