Target: Texas State Assembly/All State Assemblies

Petition Background (Preamble):

TBI (Tramatic Brain Injury) survivors face difficult and challenging conditions and situations and often endure physical disabilities as well.

TBI which can happen to anyone, at any age, through millions of different occurrences (car/motorcycle accidents, medical malpractice, work related injuries, etc.) and it changes a person's life and their families' lives as well forever.

However, at the time that a person suffers a TBI, it can take years of recovery to fully comprehend the severity of this drastic life-changing event. Because of this, the statute of limitations should be extended for TBI victims/survivors by doubling the standard time frame.

Extending of the statute of limitations is deemed necessary to ensure TBI victims who had been denied access to the courts, due to their disability, were given a chance to pursue their legal claims against the responsible party.

Petition:

We, the undersigned, call on the State Assembly, to double the time frame for the statute of limitations for TBI survivors and their families.
