Aransas Pass – Time Limitations
What is a statute of limitations?
A statute of limitation is a law which prohibits prosecutors from charging someone with a crime that was committed more than a specified number of years ago. Each state has their own specific number of years. The purpose of statutes of limitation is to make sure criminals are not convicted based on deteriorated evidence (physical or eyewitness). After the period of the statute has run, the criminal is basically free.
What is the time specification in Texas?
In the state of Texas, the "statute of limitations" in most claims involving personal injury and/or death is two (2) years from the date the claim was filed. Some are some exceptions for special circumstances. If you do not file a claim against the responsible party within the allotted time, the court will not allow you to file a lawsuit related in any way to this incident. This means that the careless person who injured you goes completely unpunished and you will be forced to suffer without any assistance.
