Midland Time Limitations
In order to deliver justice fairly and equally to every citizen that comes before the court, judges will hear cases in a constitutionally-mandated fair and speedy manner. Unfortunately, there are so many cases that this speedy manner has become a relative term, and though the justice system and the attorneys working within it do their best to keep the legal process moving swiftly, a variety of circumstances can stall the court and require delays that can last anywhere from five minutes to over a year. The balance of fairness with swiftness is difficult to maintain, which is why the lawyers at Carabin & Shaw have familiarized themselves with the Midland court system and, in particular, Midland time limitations.
These Midland time limitations, also referred to in legal terms as statutes of limitation, can impact any kind of case. They are in place to make sure the legal system is not bogged down by cases where, due to the sensitive nature of the evidence on which the case is centered, it is difficult to determine fault. This helps ensure new cases can be brought and heard each day, cases that have a greater chance of serving justice accurately and swiftly. But the consequences of such statutes can be particularly severe when it comes to a wrongful death lawsuit. There is a 2-year limitation in which a Midland wrongful death lawsuit can be filed. But as our Midland area attorneys will explain during your initial consultation, filing a suit and preparing a suit for filing are two different things. It can be difficult to know exactly how long it will take to prepare a suit, since so much has to be determined before sending the suit to court. This is why we have a dedicated Midland wrongful death lawyer who can help you in this difficult time.
After the loss of a loved one, filing a Midland wrongful death suit is the last thing on your mind. From taking care of the deceased person's dependents, to making sure food is on the table at the end of a day, caring for yourself and your loved ones is the only thing discernible beyond your grief. And we believe that is the way it should be, which is why our lawyers want to lift the strain of filing a lawsuit off your shoulders so you can be with your family as much as is possible during the immediate grieving process. The statute of limitations is designed to keep erroneous facts from slowing down the court, but that does not mean your case had to be processed on the court's timeline. Our Midland lawyers strive to make sure you receive the relief you and your family need as quickly as possible, so you can focus on healing and providing for others who have suffered.
