A unique accident occurred on I-20 last night in rural Kaufman County when a boat came loose from a tow and landed on top of another vehicle. Thankfully, everyone involved in the accident was safe, and there were no injuries. Despite no one being hurt, it took road crews more than two hours to get the boat and mess off of I-20. These types of accidents confirm that you never know what is going to happen when you are driving around the Lewisville/Fort Worth area.
Why You Need a Car Accident Attorney
The majority of accidents occur due to some negligence. In this particular instance, a negligent vehicle knocked the boat off the hitch and caused a much worse accident. It is important that when you are involved in a car accident that you immediately talk to an experienced attorney. After an accident, the clock starts ticking on the statute of limitations.
Statute of Limitations
Under Texas law, you have two years from the date of your accident to file your lawsuit. While that sounds like a long time, your attorney needs time to determine the facts in your case to make your suit as strong as possible. Do not wait until the last minute to seek out the advice of an attorney. Failure to file your lawsuit in time will end up with you being unable to obtain any compensation for your claim.
