The statute of limitations in California for a car accident is two years. There are circumstances that a minor child under 18 injured in a car accident will have that time extended. If a government agency is responsible, your time frame is much less, sometimes six months. You need an attorney to review your case early so they can go out and investigate the accident. You want your attorney to take every step that is required to fully protect you and make sure your claim is either settled or filed before the time limit is up.
If you don’t file your lawsuit within that window, you will lose all compensation and damages for your injuries. Don’t put yourself at risk, call our office for a free consultation.
