In Texas the statute of limitations for medical malpractice and wrongful death is two years. The clock typically starts on the date the injury occurred.
Generally Medical Negligence cases are controlled by very strict rules, especially in Texas. The 2 year limitations may be more than two years if a minor plaintiff is involved or if wrongful death is alleged. There really is not enough information in this post to make a good evaluation. I suggest you consult with a personal injury attorney or maybe two so you can be fully informed.

You should consult with an attorney about your options, especially if you were injured. You should consult with your insurance company and see if the collision is covered by your insurance then let them handle it. As a last resort you can sue in Justice Court in Texas without the need of an attorney if your damages are less than $10,000.00. But before you do anything consult with a qualified personal injury attorney.
Calvert, TX- Was stopped in a gas station parking lot in rental car. Was backed into by another rental car. Driver admitted she was driving her brother's rental (both rentals from the same agency). She eventually drove off and I followed her, whil...
You can fight with the rental company at your own time and expense. Should you hire legal counsel to do it they will likely want to be paid by the hour. Or, your insurance should cover the damages and if so they can sue the other driver for reimbursement of the money they are out of pocket. Should they get a judgment then it can be filed with the Department of Public Safety and their driver's licenses. Let the insurance companies worry about it. Finally if you were injured then seek a consultation with a personal injury attorney.

You should consult with a personal injury attorney in your area. If the driver and occupants were given citations or were arrested then that conduct might add significant value to your claim.
On the 27th of April 2013 I was hit by a public transportation bus. Broke my neck and it left me Partially paralyzed. My lawyer says I have to pay back all my insurance and that even if they awarded me 5 million that I would only get 100,000. I t...
If the bus company is asserting governmental immunity then you are likely limited in the recovery that you can receive. You should ask for a meeting with your attorney and ask him if this the case. You might also looks to potential other parties that may be responsible. Such as other driver's or maybe a product liability case. Without more information we just do not know. Your attorney cannot settle the case without your signature on the Release and/or Settlement documents, so I would go have a meeting with him and get your questions answered.

If you were injured you need to seek medical care and contact a personal injury attorney to evaluate your claim. You can open a claim on your own through the other driver's insurance company now if needed. Or if you are only seeking property damage and you cannot get the insurance company to pay it then you can sue the other driver in Justice Court as long as it is for less than $10,000.00 in total damages. If you then get a judgment and you have not been paid then you can file the Judgment with the Department of Public Safety and they can prevent the other driver from getting a license or renewing one until it is paid.
Your last option is to claim the property damage on your own insurance if you have collision coverage and could pay then go after the other driver on your behalf.
Last Tuesday, we were under a flash flood warning. I hydroplaned and hit the concrete barrier on the interstate. Thankfully I was the only person around and I was the only car involved in my accident. I called dispatch to have police personnel com...
You need to notify your auto insurance carrier immediately and let them take care of it. And if you receive a letter from a law firm or a phone call then you likewise need to forward that information on to your auto insurance carrier.
I was in an accident a couple of months ago and at that time filed the property damage claim. An injury adjuster called me and asked me If I would be filing an injury claim, I then told him I wasn't sure because I wanted to see if my injuries woul...
In Texas you have two years from the date of the injury to process your claim. After the two period your statute of limitations has run. I suggest you contact a personal injury attorney to evaluate your case. Most do not charge for the initial consultation.

Sounds like you need to consult with a criminal attorney. I have changed this post to the criminal attorney message board.
It was a 5 car accident where a car hit me, bounced off, and hit another vehicle, which continued from there. I personally did not hit anyone.
Call your insurance adjuster and get the paperwork to them asap. There are deadlines that apply and you do not want to miss one.
