In California, you only have a certain number of years to file a personal injury claim after an accident or injury before being barred from filing. This is referred to as a statute of limitations. The time period in which you can file a personal injury lawsuit depends on your specific type of claim. If a person is barred, or prevented from filing, it is because the statute of limitations has ended.
2 Year Time Limit to File Claim – Most types of personal injury claims have a statute of limitations of two years from the date the injury or accident occurred. This means if the accident happened on January 25, 2017, you have until January 25, 2019 to file your lawsuit. Personal injury claims involving property damage have a three-year statute of limitations. This starts the date the property damage occurred.
Discovery after the Statute of Limitations – There is an exception to the two-year statute of limitations rule. It occurs if the injury is discovered after the statute of limitations ends. If you discovered your injury after your statute of limitations, you have one year to file. For example, you were involved in a car accident in February 13, 2017. The statute of limitations ended February 13, 2019. You did not discover your injury until June 15, 2019. You have one year from that June date to file a personal injury claim. Thus, the new statute of limitations would be June 15, 2020. In these time sensitive cases, it is always a good idea to initially consult with a professional and experienced personal injury attorney to fully understand your rights and responsibilities.
Claim Against a Government Entity – Another exception with the time to file a personal injury claim would be if you have a personal injury case against a government entity. Any claim against a government agency must be filed within six months of the accident date. If your claim is denied, you can then file a lawsuit in California civil court. Time limits still apply.
