How Long Do You Have to File a Workplace Injury Lawsuit?

If a personal injury lawsuit needs to be filed because of a workplace accident, under Texas law, the general rule is that the lawsuit must be filed within two years from the accident date. If you miss the deadline, you will likely lose your right to make your claim. There are some exceptions that could either extend or shorten this deadline, so it’s important to consult with a workplace accident lawyer as soon as possible to determine when your claim must be filed.
