Unfortunately, accidents that result in injury happen every day. Often, these accidents, which can include car accidents, dog bites, slips and falls, motorcycle accidents, and defective product accidents, are caused by another person or company. If you were involved in an accident caused by a third party's intentional or negligent actions, you might be able to pursue a personal injury claim against the responsible party.
At Gonzales Law Office, our Sacramento personal injury lawyer can adeptly handle your case to help you recover compensation for your losses.
California Statute of Limitations for Personal Injury Claims
In California, personal injury claims have a two-year statute of limitations. This means that an injured person must file a lawsuit within two years of the date the negligent act was committed, or else they may be barred from claiming damages. It is important to note that this deadline is absolute, meaning it can't be extended even if the plaintiff was unaware of their injuries. Additionally, exceptional circumstances may also extend this period in some instances.
After an accident, you rightfully might be feeling angry or frustrated because your painful injuries are preventing you from going about your routine. You might also need to take time off work to receive medical treatment, which means you may not receive pay and may face unexpected medical bills that cut into funds you had reserved for other expenses.
