How much time do I have after my car accident to decide whether or not to sue?

You have two years to file a car accident claim in Texas. However, you should speak to an attorney as soon as possible after your crash. During a free consultation with the attorney, you can get a better understanding of whether or not you have a valid claim. If you do, the attorney will then need to investigate the accident, gather evidence, and collect medical records. All of this takes time, so you should seek legal advice as soon as possible after the crash.
