California’s Statute of Limitations

If you intend on filing a claim for a personal injury lawsuit in California, time may be running out. Statute of limitations can prevent you from receiving compensation for your personal injury, property damage, or wrongful death claim. In California, these statutes are outlined by strict limitations on civil actions and must be regarded when considering a lawsuit. As always, it is within your best interest to contact an accident lawyer immediately following an accident.

California Statute of Limitations Outline

  • In the case of personal injury it is sometimes difficult to determine the victims’ long term medical needs. For instance, a backache at the time of an accident can develop into a spinal problem down the road. It is important to pursue regular medical check ups following an accident. If these injuries turn out to be life-altering, your accident lawyer will be able to acquire an adequate settlement to cover medical costs, loss of wages, etc.. If this type of compensation is not pursued and the statute of limitations on your case runs out, you will not be able to file a lawsuit. Currently, the statute of limitations on personal injury lawsuits in California is two years from the date of the injury and one year from the date of the discovery of the injury.
  • In the case of property damage, the statute of limitation runs out after three years since the date of the accident. If issues with your property are not resolved within this time, you will not be able to seek compensation for damages.
  • In the case of wrongful death, you must seek damages immediately. Are you suffering from injuries due to an accident? Contact an accident lawyer today!
