How long do I have to file a pedestrian injury claim in California?
A young lady came to my office after she had been injured as a pedestrian by a vehicle and she wanted to know how long she had to file her claim. Generally, in California, for personal injury actions, you have two years to file a claim. That is the general rule for all personal injury claims, including those as a pedestrian. The only exception to that would be if you are having to make a claim against a governmental entity, that could be perhaps the city employee who’s driving a vehicle and they hit you; that would be considered a case against the government and in that situation, you would only have six months to file a claim.
Were you or a loved one seriously injured by a motor vehicle while walking, running, or jogging and have questions about the pedestrian injury settlement timeline?
