How Long Do I Have to File A Personal Injury Claim?

The answer to this question depends on the state you are in. Each state has its own statute of limitations. You should contact a personal injury attorney in your area as soon as possible to discuss your options. If you do not file your personal injury claim within the statute of limitations, you will lose your right to bring a lawsuit.
Personal injury generally refers to any mental and physical injuries to a person’s body that are caused by the negligence of a third party. These do not include damage or destruction to one’s property, such as your car or house.

Can I File a Personal Injury Claim?

If you suffered personal injuries in an accident caused by the fault of a third person in California, that person is liable and you are entitled to some personal injury compensation for the damages caused. These may include your medical bills, lost wages, and compensation for your pain and suffering.
In accordance with the statute of limitations in California law, you can file a personal injury claim against the party at fault, two years from the date when you acquired the personal injury. If you and your California personal injury lawyer are unable to negotiate a settlement with the party at fault or their insurance company, you should consider filing a lawsuit before the expiry of the statute of limitations. You’re giving up your right to sue the party responsible for the injuries if you don’t file a lawsuit before the statue of limitation expires.
