While picking your lawyer is a process that should not be rushed, you can't afford to drag your feet on the matter, either. The Texas statue of limitations does place time limits on when you are able to file a personal injury claim on behalf of your child.
If a child is under the age of 18 the statute of limitations of 2 years begins to run on their 18 th birthday, except in wrongful death or medical malpractice cases. This does not mean you can delay filing your claim until then – in fact, that's a very bad idea!
An injury claim should be filed as soon as possible to avoid losing critical evidence pertaining to the accident and your child's injuries.
As a parent you are responsible for filing an injury claim on behalf of your minor child. You'll not only have to focus on helping your child recover from their injuries but you'll also need focus on pursuing a settlement that will take care of the medical expenses past and future and many other future considerations to protect your child.
There are many things to consider when choosing a child injury lawyer in Texas and above all you need to make sure that they have your child's best interests in mind.
