Del Rio Time Limitations
The Statute of Limitations in most Texas based claims entailing personal injury and/or wrongful death is generally two years from the date the claim accrued. This is the case even with the Del Rio time limitations. Once those two years have passed from the incident in Del Rio, you and your lawyer generally will be barred from ever filing a claim against the responsible parties. It is essential that you file a claim within those two years, or the culprit will not be held liable and will go unpunished for their wrongdoing. If you or a loved one is in need of a Del Rio Accident attorney because of a Del Rio wrongful death , please contact the attorneys of Carabin & Shaw today.
If there is a question of if your family holds a wrongful death claim, you should always seek the advice of a legal professional. There may also, in certain cases, be other deadlines within the Del Rio time limitations of the first two years that may also impact the case. An example of this is with claims against government entities, there may also be a requirement that the entity or entities be put on notice much earlier than the Del Rio statute of limitations period. Further, expert and legal analysis must be done prior to the filing of a lawsuit. Waiting to seek a lawyer until the statute of limitations period is nearing its end is inadvisable. If you do wait, an attorney may not have enough time to complete a thorough review prior to the expiration of the limitations in Del Rio.
It is also very important that individuals seeking legal help involving a case of wrongful death contact a lawyer as soon as possible because of the unreliability of memory. As time spreads out following event(s), memories of the event or events in question tend to fade in witnesses. Even if potential witnesses may clearly remember an event or factor leading to wrongful death, they may have moved. Likewise, potential witnesses may have since the event in question become incapacitated to a point where they are not able to provide testimony.
