In a personal injury claim, injured individuals may be eligible to recover compensatory damages. These damages consist of economic and non-economic losses and encompass all the harms that have been inflicted upon the individual.

Economic damages include the financial harms an individual has suffered. This could include compensation for lost wages, medical bills, lost earning capacity, and more. Non-economic damages, on the other hand, do not have a monetary value and include subjective harms such as pain and suffering or loss of enjoyment of life.

In some situations, an injured individual may share partial responsibility for the event that caused their injuries. Fortunately, Texas law allows injured individuals to still seek compensation as long as they are no more than 50 percent at fault for the accident.

In such a situation, the plaintiff’s total recoverable compensation would be docked according to their percentage of fault. It may be best to speak to a seasoned Fort Worth personal injury lawyer to identify partial fault and determine how to still recover compensation.

According to Texas Civil Practice and Remedies Code §16.003, personal injury claims must be filed within two years of the initial accident. Failure to bring a claim to the court within the two-year deadline may result in the injured person becoming ineligible to seek compensation from the at-fault party.

There are some exceptions to the rule, however. For example, this deadline does not apply to injuries resulting from the following types of incidents: Asbestos exposure, Silica exposure, Forced prostitution, Human trafficking

Since there are exceptions to the statute of limitations, injured individuals should speak with a knowledgeable legal representative to ensure that their claim is filed on time.
