Statute of limitations
Statutes of limitation provide limits on how long you have to commence a lawsuit on your claim. The law sets out different limitation periods for various kinds of cases that can be traps for the unwary. The most common statute for personal injury claims in California is a two-year statute. You must either settle your claims or file a lawsuit against the responsible parties within two years after the accident. Different statutes of limitation apply to claims against government agencies, attorneys, doctors and many others. Contact us to determine the statute that applies to the facts of your case.
