How Long Do You Have to Handle a Texas Wrongful Death Claim?

Under Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code § 16.003, you generally have two years to file a wrongful death claim. After this two-year period, the statute of limitations expires for these claims, preventing you from seeking compensation.

You may have less time to move forward with your legal case in some cases. For example, Texas shortens the statute of limitations for accidents involving government workers.

A wrongful death lawyer can review the specifics of your family’s claim, helping you determine how long you have to move forward with your legal case. Find out more by reaching out to us today.
