How soon should I file a claim?

Every state has a limitation on the length of time between a personal injury occurrence and when the victim can file a claim called a statute of limitations, or SOL. In Texas, the SOL is two years, so only within two years of nursing home abuse occurring may a victim or victim’s family pursue legal action. In many cases, abuse is ongoing, so the SOL varies. Of course, as soon as abuse happens, you should talk with a nursing home abuse lawyer who can help you take the steps necessary to protect yourself and loved ones.
