These injuries can range from moderate to severe and are almost accompanied by high medical bills and a long road to recovery.

Statute of Limitations for Texas Malpractice Claims

In Texas, most legal claims are subject to a certain time limit during which you must file your suit. The state sets the statute of limitations for malpractice claims at two years. This means you have two years from the date of your injury to file your claim. There are exceptions to the two-year statute and a consultation with Attorney John Runge will assist you in determining whether your facts qualify for one of those exceptions.

In a personal injury claim, you can seek compensation for:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Lost wages
  • Medical bills and hospitalization
  • Punitive damages

Texas limits the amount you can recover from a doctor or hospital. This limit is determined by the type of damages you are attempting to recover. Non-economic damages include pain and suffering, while economic damages cover your wages and bills.
