How to Handle the Insurance Process in Texas
It is in the best interests of most personal injury plaintiffs to hire lawyers to represent them. While you can represent yourself, this generally will not end in the best possible results for your claim. Insurance companies know who they can take advantage of and who has the ability to take them to trial. When you hire a lawyer, you enter the second category. A lawyer’s experience and trial capabilities can convince an insurance company to offer more for your injuries and damages than you might be able to recover on your own. Hiring a lawyer will give you confidence in the proper handling of your case.

How Long Should You Wait to Talk to an Attorney?
Many injured accident victims do not realize the clock is ticking on their right to file civil claims and seek financial compensation. All states, including Texas, have strict statutes of limitations on personal injury claims. These are laws that set deadlines on how soon plaintiffs must file. In Texas, the statute of limitations for most construction site accident claims is two years from the date of the accrual of injury. You may have more or less than two years to file, however, if the defendant is a government agency, the injured victim was a minor or other exceptions apply to your case. Speak to an attorney as soon as possible after a construction accident in San Antonio to make sure you do not miss your deadline.
