As the boat comes around a wall of the canyon covered in trees, the sun shines on the woman in the boat and the scene opens up to show even more faces of the canyon covered in plants and trees.

After a serious accident or injury, the insurance company is not on your side. In fact, insurance adjusters will often try to dispute or devalue valid claims, sometimes by pressuring you to sign an agreement or accept a settlement for far less than you deserve.
Attempting to settle without legal counsel is extremely risky, as you could be losing out on thousands of dollars in compensation that you may otherwise receive with the help of a skilled lawyer. At the Law Offices of Willie D. Powells III & Associates PLLC, we do not want you to be a victim twice—first as the victim of a negligent or wrongful act, and again by falling prey to the insurance company’s efforts to underpay your claim. Instead, we stand up for the rights of injured victims and the families of those wrongfully killed. We fight back against insurance companies’ deceitful and unjust tactics and are fully prepared to represent you at trial if necessary.
“You deserve a lawyer who genuinely cares about you. We are here to add value to your case and to make sure you get all the justice you are entitled to under the law.”

How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Claim in Texas?
According to the Texas Civil Practice & Remedies Code section 16.003, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases in the state of Texas is two years. This means you have two years starting from the date your injury occurred to file. If you miss this time period, you will almost certainly lose your right to do so. It’s important to note that there are exceptions that can change amount of time you have to file.
Some examples of these exceptions include:
- If the injury victim was under the age of 18 when the accident occurred
- If the alleged negligent party leaves the state before a claim is filed
The statute of limitations has a big impact on your ability to file a claim so it’s important to speak to an experienced lawyer about the specifics of your case as soon as you can.

How do I know if I have a personal injury case?
In Texas, anyone who is injured and suffers measurable damages, or losses, as a result of someone else’s negligence, wrongful conduct, or default may file a personal injury claim. To determine whether you have a case, ask yourself: Did someone else have a legal responsibility to take certain measures to avoid causing you harm? Did that person or party fail to take those measures or otherwise act negligently? Were you injured as a result of that person or party’s negligent or wrongful conduct? Did your injuries lead to certain economic and/or non-economic losses, like medical bills, lost wages, or pain and suffering? If so, you are likely entitled to file a personal injury claim and seek compensation for your damages. The best way to determine if you have a case is to schedule a case evaluation with a personal injury lawyer. Contact the Law Offices of Willie D. Powells III & Associates PLLC today to set up a no-cost, no-obligation consultation with a member of our team.
How much is my personal injury case worth?
When valuing a personal injury case, there are many factors to consider, including the costs associated with your medical care, the long-term impact on your life and work, and the amount of physical and mental pain and suffering you have endured due to your injuries. For further information regarding the potential value of your claim, schedule a complimentary case evaluation with the Law Offices of Willie D. Powells III & Associates PLLC today.
If I file a personal injury claim, will I have to go to court?
Like all states, Texas has a statute of limitations on personal injury claims. This means that you have a deadline by which you must file your claim in court, or the court will dismiss your case and you will be unable to pursue compensation for your damages. In Texas, the statute of limitations on nearly all personal injury lawsuits is two years from the date of injury. If the injury could not have been reasonably discovered right away, the statute of limitations may be deferred to two years from the date on which it was discovered or reasonably could have been discovered.
What types of damages can I recover in an injury case?
The exact types of damages you may be able to receive depend on the specific losses you have endured, as well as other factors. That being said, many victims of negligence are entitled to compensation for their resulting medical bills, lost wages, lost earning capacity, pain and suffering, emotional distress, lost quality of life, and future costs. Contact our firm to speak to an attorney about your case and the types of damages you may be entitled to.
