What Is the Statute of Limitations for a Pedestrian Accident Case?
The statute of limitations is a deadline for filing a lawsuit. In Texas, the statute of limitations for most personal injury cases is two years. This means that you must file a personal injury lawsuit within two years of the date of the accident.
In some cases, the statute of limitations may be extended. If you were a minor when the accident occurred, the statute of limitations may be extended until you turn 18 years old. If you were a minor when the accident occurred and suffered a serious injury, the statute of limitations may be extended until you turn 22 years old.
What Damages Can I Recover in a Pedestrian Accident Lawsuit?
If you are hit by a car while walking down the street, you may suffer a wide range of injuries. You may be knocked unconscious, suffer a traumatic brain injury, break bones, or sustain other serious injuries. You may be temporarily or permanently disabled. No matter what injuries you suffer, you may be entitled to compensation. In a pedestrian accident lawsuit, you may be able to recover compensation for all of your damages.
In a successful pedestrian accident lawsuit, you may be able to recover compensation for:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- Property damage
Depending on the circumstances of your case, you may be able to recover punitive damages. Punitive damages are awarded to punish the defendant for particularly egregious behavior. If the defendant was extremely reckless or acted with malice, you may be able to recover punitive damages.
