How long do I have to file a car injury claim in California?
A question that new clients often ask us is, “How do I file a claim for a car injury in the state of California?” It’s important to understand, first and foremost, that you should seek the advice of an experienced personal injury attorney because there are multiple laws that govern how and when you should file your claim. For example, if you are involved in a claim or an incident with what’s called a governmental entity, the statute of limitations to bring your claim is only six months. Alternatively, if you’re involved in an incident with a private citizen, you have up to two years to file your claim. The distinction between when to file a claim is pretty nuanced, and that is one of the main reasons why you want to seek the advice of an experienced car injury attorney as soon as possible.
