What is the Statute of Limitations on Insurance Claims in Texas?
In Texas, the statute of limitations for filing insurance claims after a car accident is two years from the accident date. This two-year clock starts counting down on the day of the accident.
The deadline will pause until the defendant returns to Texas if they leave the state after the accident and before the lawsuit is filed. The period of their absences is not counted as part of the two years stated in the statute of limitations.

Professional liability is distinct from personal liability. An individual or business is professionally liable when their work harms another person. Someone is personally liable if their non-work-related conduct harms another person.
Professionals and their businesses purchase and maintain professional liability insurance policies to protect themselves against the exorbitant costs associated with professional liability exposures, which are inherent to certain occupations.
The Griffith Law Group routinely represents defendants in claims made against:
- Healthcare Professionals
